What we're about

We're foodies with an environmental conscience & concern for animal welfare.

Meatless Meetup is run by a group of volunteer hosts who believe it to be of critical environmental importance that we drastically reduce our meat and dairy consumption.

Food at our events is vegan but we're not a vegan club. Anyone interested in lowering their carbon footprint by eating more plant based meals, even if never planning to go vegan, is welcome.

We ask members to use a real first name and face photo so we can recognize each other at events. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer with us, from collecting cash at restaurants to helping out at potlucks. If you want to meet more people at events, get in touch.

N.B. As your volunteer hosts can be asked to pay for no show diners, we ask that you be willing to pay for your meal at our events if you cancel without adequate notice.

All Ages Vegan Dinner At IKEA -- $Cheap$

IKEA Coquitlam

! RSVP is OPEN ! Family Event. Great For Adults and Kids! IKEA's vegan Växt Burger is not available to the public at the moment, but they will open their Food Truck specially for our group for one hour!!! Come and be one of the first people to try the Växt Burger. That's right! IKEA has vegan food! In fact, IKEA has vegan offerings not only at their Restaurant, but also at their Bistro and their Food Truck. Yeah, a furniture store has three eateries at the Coquitlam Location. This location is also home to the IKEA vegan Växt Burger; not available anywhere else in the world at the moment. They are experimenting on us! Växt, means 'plant' in Swedish. IKEA also has many vegan and organic retail foods for purchase outside of their eateries. Who knew?! With 5 thousand customers per day, they sell a lot more food than one imagines a furniture store might sell. Vegan Burgers, Vegan Veggie Dogs, Vegan Veggie Balls... jams, oils, smoothies, crackers, snacks, drinks, cereals, condiments... and an insider at IKEA told me that according IKEA headquarters meetings they've attended, IKEA is moving in an organic and vegan direction with the hopes of making all of their products this way in the near future. In other countries they have already made available vegan ice-cream, vegan caviar, vegan frozen foods, etc. all coming to an IKEA near you in the near future. So, join us for dinner at a furniture store to sample their vegan offerings. The prices are quite reasonable, the veggie dogs are $1 each!! ╔═════════╗ ║ EVENT INFO ║ ╚═════════╝ Each person can buy what they want individually, but I beg of you to try the VÄXT Burger as they are offering this specially for this meetup.
