What we're about

The Bucks County Vegan Supper Club has evolved over the years from its original goals of simply organizing vegan gourmet dining experiences to a much broader spectrum of activities related to veganism. We still organize dinners, but also participate in vegan events organized by other groups, organize trips to local and not so local vegan establishments, and even have regular boardgame nights (accompanied by delicious vegan food, of course). The group has become a great support network for both starting and veteran vegans. If you are a vegetarian, vegan or veg-friendly neighbor in the Bucks County area and love cooking, entertaining, and hanging out with friends, join us!

Disclaimers: the group's purpose is to further veganism, focusing on using social events to promote and support it. It's not a political platform or a platform for any other causes. We are a private group and reserve the right to refuse membership to anyone who violates the group's purpose, hijacks and uses the group as a means to further their own causes, or behaves in a manner judged unacceptable by the organizers.

Please read our rules (VERY IMPORTANT) in regard to RSVPs and wait lists at the link below:
