How did you hear about this group?

I started it. I'm a very imperfect host but trying my best on a volunteer basis to provide a wide range of plant based events for members. We have a great group of assistant organizers, too.

What's your favourite vegetarian restaurant in Greater Vancouver?

Among my favourites are Indigo Food, Po Kong, Sun Bo Kong, Lucha Verde, and Chau Veggiexpress.

What's your favourite non-veg restaurant that has veg options?

My favourites are Axum, East is East, and Nuba.

WHICH diet do you follow: vegetarian, vegan, pescaterian (fish but no meat), flexitarian (usually veg, but not always), raw foodist or omnivore?

Vegan working towards a whole foods diet.

Are you also a member of Earthsave Canada (, the charity that promotes the plant based diet?

No longer on the Board of Directors but still a member. It's a worthwhile charity to support, since no other charities seem to be educating us about the impacts of food choices on the environment.


I love long stories, listening to them & telling them.

What Nancy is saying about this Meetup Group

Hard to generalize once a group gets above three thousand people! I especially like that this group is welcoming to non-vegetarians. We all have an awareness that our food choices impact the planet and wanting to shift to more plant based foods unites us. Don't assume the members you see in an animated conversation are all long time friends. In fact the people you're seeing may be mostly strangers! It's just that kind of group--people make friends fast because we tend to have a lot in common.
