Try Vegan PDX presents: Vegan in the New Year and Recipe Exchange

Do you know someone who has been thinking about trying to live a vegan lifestyle, or may be new to the diet and wants to learn more? Perhaps you are that person?

We invite you to one of Try Vegan PDX's annual events, Vegan in the New Year. At this year's event we will give a brief presentation, break into smaller groups, exchange vegan recipes (please bring 20-30 copies of your recipe), and support each other with some of the challenges or questions that often come up as a transitioning to vegan, new to vegan, or vegan veteran.

Invite your on the fence friends to receive an extra raffle ticket for your chance to win one of ten gift cards to Veggie Grill!

    I thought it went really well. About half of the people there were either vegetarians or people who wanted to learn more about being vegan as a lifestyle. It was a good balance of people from different spectrums and certainly different backgrounds.

    We are excited to see all of you in just a couple of hours. Don't forget to bring 15-20 copies of a vegan recipe. Also, we will be selling our Vegan Guide to Portland guidebooks at the event, so if you are interested in getting one be sure to bring $5. If anyone has not been to people's before, at the end of the event, we will give a store tour to whoever is interested. See you at 2:30 and Happy Vegan New Year!

    I don't have anyone to bring, so I'll leave the space for someone who does! Happy New Year!

      My mom has just arrived to spend some time. She is very interested in the vegan life. But she has sprained her ankle and the walk is too far. Is there anyone we could catch a ride with? We are at 16th and Hawthorne. Thanks!

      We have a ride! Thank you Christopher!

    If you are already vegan and plan to com please try and bring someone who is on the fence, vegetarian, or vegan curious- as this event is specifically for those people or those who are new to Portland as well.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
