* is friendly and welcoming. * facilitates people with different levels of interest in meat free food to meet, talk and eat together.
* are regular & informal at different venues across Hong Kong SAR. * when in restaurants try to facilitate sharing different dishes among all attending. * thus have only all-vegan dishes ordered for the group as a 'low common denominator' within the different diets of the attendees. Hence we are a vegan food group in which anyone is welcome
* are volunteers passionate about meat free food who organise on a strictly not-for-profit basis. * select only 100% vegetarian venues for the restaurant roster. * visit new restaurants prior to adding it to the meetup roster. This is to evaluate a restaurant's suitability for a meetup. * always pay equal share at restaurant meetups. Costs of evaluation visits and to planning meetings with restaurants are borne by the organisers at no cost to the group. * believe in the group to constructively showcase benefits of veg*anism and is not for any kind of organiser's financial gain.
Since we are a non profit social group rather than a business group we politely request marketing and promotional material is not:-
* posted in our meetup.com group. * included in member profiles.
