What we're about

A meetup is where people with similar interests get together and hang out.

A vegetarian meetup is where vegetarians with similar interests get together and hang out. Of course, we're a diverse lot, so we'll meet LOTS of folks whose interests are somewhat different from our own, but who share the vegetarian interests with us.

Join us AND the other Vegetarians-Of-Boston Meetups for the Vegetarian Happy Hour [Happy Hour with Vegetarians]
6:30 pm-8:20 pm

We hold other events at an all-vegetarian restaurant, often by following the events of local vegetarian and animal rights groups.

A Vegan Meetup (which we also attend) is held on the 1st Saturday of each month
at Veggie Planet
47 Palmer Street
Cambridge, MA 02138
11:30 am to 2 pm

Dinner with Dharma is held on the 4th Friday at the Greater Boston Buddhist Cultural Center (GBBCC) at 950 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138 - $10 for the all-vegan buffet.

So, if you are also vegan, do (nominally or enthusiastically) join
the Boston VEGAN Meetup

We also tag along with BVS (BostonVeg.org), BVA (BostonVegan.org), Vegan Meetup events, and MARC.

You are encouraged to volunteer 50 cents/month to help defray costs ($6/year) - on a continuing basis (paid at Meetup OR online).

Veggie Eats Potluck and Meetup with Shakti Rowan

CIC Cambridge (4th Floor)

Join Shakti Rowan for food and conversation at their first vegetarian potluck! Their regular monthly gathering is on the second Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7pm. At each session, they may feature a guest speaker, watch something inspirational about plant-based nutrition, or introduce a discussion topic. Attendees need not be committed to vegan or vegetarian practice to attend, so bring friends. Just show up with a vegan dish to share with at least 4 others, who may or may not be vegan or even vegetarian. Sign up here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSegUc97l2oifSPVmG9jhpH86Rj4SC-hn0Uopa_E4a-jy2jpuQ/viewform to let them know what you are bringing or email [masked] if you have any questions. Their next session is Melissa from Mission Nutrition for a conversation about healthy meal planning. http://www.missionnutritionboston.com/ Learn to feel better and enjoy food with high-quality nutrition that tastes great to you (and hopefully for your family and friends, also - test them out by bringing them to your worksite to share with colleagues). During the session, they promise to: - Build meals that represent your personal health needs and goals - Identify sources of protein and micronutrients (especially important for flexitarians, vegetarians, and vegans - and for friends' and acquaintaces' and radio interviewers' questions!) - Use apps (like MyFitnessPal and Fitbit) to stay accountable and learn what works Attendees will leave with at least one self-designed meal ideas guided by Melissa plus free online access to Mission Nutrition's meal planning tools for future practice! If you're interested, check out Melissa's blog "Does becoming a vegetarian make me lose weight?" which includes a free Sesame Tofu Four Ways meal plan. https://medium.com/@missionnutritionboston/does-becoming-a-vegetarian-help-you-lose-weight-530fd2df324f https://medium.com/@missionnutritionboston/sesame-tofu-four-ways-c3a9fcd45296

Monthly Boston Vegetarian Meetup (Vegan Food) at Veggie Grill, Harvard Square

The 14 attendees at the October vegan dinner meetup voted to hold the November vegan dinner meetup at the newly opened Veggie Grill, 57 John F. Kennedy Street, near the MBTA bus platform and the Harvard Kennedy School and the USPO in Harvard Square, on Thursday evening, November 14th, from 7pm to 9pm. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veggie_Grill This is Veggie Grill's FIRST or Second East Coast location (they have one also in NYC); last year's expansion into Chicago marked its development east of the West Coast. Always check out http://www.meetup.com/Boston-Vegetarian-Meetup/ for the details. This monthly dining-out social event is cross-listed with the monthly 'dining out' meetups of: • the Boston Vegetarian Meetup (some may not even be vegetarians) • the Boston Vegan Meetup • the Boston Abolitionist Vegan Meetup (harming animals for food or anything else is REALLY wrong! whatever anyone says about personal choice - and it needs to stop NOW)!! If you're a member of more than one group, there's more company, but not everyone is on the same place of the same page. The event organizers will check redundant meetups and adjust their expectations. At least sign up in this one. If you need to change your mind and not attend, PLEASE be sure to adjust your response(s) on Meetup.com.
