This group is for those who have chosen a vegan, plant-based diet, or those who are considering doing so. It is for support and socializing, as well as for learning and sharing information on healthy eating, animal compassion, and helping the environment through our food choices. We do potlucks, have discussions and educational sessions, share recipes, and support each other on our journeys. Let's celebrate our healthy, compassionate life style and be respectful of our differences.
Come celebrate the 8th Anniversary of Birmingham Vegans. It seems fitting that we return to Whole Foods Market, where it all began when our founder Greg Fuller held the first meetup there in July 2013.
Since then, the group has enjoyed hundreds of gatherings around Birmingham. We have featured talks from authors, demonstrations from chefs, vegan-themed films, canned food drives, potlucks, outdoor picnics, dinners and lunches at restaurants, etc. We launched the first Alabama Vegan Fest, which was a great success thanks to dozens of volunteers from this group. Covid may have temporarily slowed us down, but we are back!
Grab something vegan from the hot bar or salad bar, or just get a drink or snack and join us. Whole Foods Market has promised to have available some good vegan options for our event. We may be in the inside seating area or the patio depending on weather and accommodations, but we will be easy to find.
Please be vaccinated so we can all gather safely and with peace of mind. We look forward to seeing you!
