What we're about

Are you a vegetarian or vegan family in the northern NJ area? Or interested in becoming a veg family? Or you have a mixed veg and non-veg household? Or maybe you have a kid who wants to become veg and you're not sure where to start? The NJ Vegetarian/Vegan Families group was created for like-minded families to have fun meetups around plant-powered meals at local kid-friendly veg/veg-friendly restaurants, share recipes and dishes, organize backyard BBQs and picnics at the park, visit area farmers markets, attend kid-friendly and animal-friendly outdoor activities, and explore whatever other awesome ideas we can crowdsource. In other words, we want to show our kids that it's possible to be veg and have fun and be able to eat yummy things (vegan soft serve ice cream at Positivitea, anyone?)

Whether your whole family is vegan, or you have a vegetarian kid, or a mixed household with both veg and non-veg family members, or just want to find out more about how to incorporate vegan and vegetarian food into your family's life, the NJ Vegetarian/Vegan Families with Kids meetup is a fun, safe, supportive, judgment-free space for vegetarians/vegans and their families to connect!

NOTE: This group exists to bring veg families with children together (newborn to big kids!). We come from diverse backgrounds and want ALL families who are interested in coming to a meetup to feel welcome and to respect any differences of opinion, so while we should all feel free to express our opinions, please save any judgment or advocacy for a different meetup group than this one. We all want to raise healthy, happy, resilient children who care about themselves and others, whether we are veg or non-veg!
