Santa Barbara Vegan Meetup brings together regional vegans, vegetarians and the veg-curious for fun, food, information sharing, and socializing. We encourage ALL to join us and for committed vegans to bring vegetarians and omnivores to our events in order to expose them to the joys of all things plant-based....with an emphasis on exploring the incredible world of the vegan cupcake (ok, maybe that's just me).
Please keep in mind that our potluck dishes contain NO animal products whatsoever: this includes meats, eggs, cheese, milk, yogurt, butter and honey.
This is a group of varying backgrounds, lifestyles, knowledge and commitment. As a whole, we encourage first and foremost: compassionate tolerance. We understand the fact that everyone is on their own individual path. At the same time our goal is to keep the discussion and spread of information regarding the benefits of a plant-based diet alive and at the forefront. Those benefits include environmental, health related, social, and animal welfare issues. We encourage participation by all in the dialogue! Join us!
