What we're about

Hi everyone,

The group:-

* is friendly and welcoming.
* facilitates people with different levels of interest in meat free food to meet, talk and eat together.

The meetups:-

* 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

The organisers:-

* 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.

The 9th Hong Kong Vegfest (postponed to December)

Needs a location

Latest update (from the offical VegFest website):
"Some time ago, we scheduled the Hong Kong Vegfest to be held on October 4th this year. Unfortunately, the current pandemic situation in Hong Kong is unstable. After assessment, we have changed it to Digital Vegfest instead. Gathering of thousands of people in the venue during 4th Oct (Vegfest day) will be cancelled and replaced by a daily 2-3 hour virtual events broadcast throughout the whole month in December. Such arrangement will bring more traffic and brand exposure of each exhibitors' business connected to the public. Starting from October, we have each and every exhibitor a digital booth published in Vegfest website."

For details, visit https://vegfest.hk/

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been postponed from January 9 to October 4, 2022

Looking for a carnival that features plant-based cooking demo, raw food demonstration, fitness workshops, music performances, sharing sessions on animal welfare, and an array of booths offering vegan goodies? You've come to the right place!

Located on a hill overseeing the beautiful sceneries of mountains and sea, Hong Kong Adventist College offers ample space for this highly anticipated event.

We shall meet near Booth No. 1, where many NGOs are located. You will see a banner that says "Meat Free Hong Kong". Feel free to bring your yoga mat and share your thoughts/experience.

No need to worry about meals. Vegan lunch boxes will be provided at Vegfest, where only vegan food is allowed. You are encouraged to bring a bottle of water though.
