Welcome to the Long Island Vegetarian Meetup

This group was founded to foster a spirit of tolerance, knowledge, compassion and understanding about our food choices and how they affect us as individuals, members of our local communities and members of the larger global community and living world.

We welcome vegetarians, vegans, veggie-friendly ominivores, fruitarians, fungivores, raw foodists, cooked foodists, those who are just taking their first steps on their journey of conscious eating, long-time foodies, novices and even professional chefs! We are a group diverse in age, background, and interests. The only requirements here are that you are interested in meeting new people, appreciate great food, are making or looking to make conscious food choices and are tolerant of others and their life/food choices.

We are a community...a community of friends. We are here to socialize together at vegan and vegetarian friendly food establishments, picnics on the beach, potlucks at each others' homes and at other fun activities such as movies or kickball in the park! Meet-ups are held anywhere from NYC to Long Island's East End (and everywhere in between)

We hope you will feel welcome and have fun in the company of like-minded individuals. And of course, we are here to gently encourage you on your journey and remind you that you are never alone. We welcome you to sojourn with us for as long as you choose.

We're 344 Long Island Vegetarians
