What we're about

Meet other people who are interested in the benefits of eating a raw vegan diet.

Come to a local Raw Food Meetup event to have fun, share raw food meals, and discuss the raw vegan diet and health issues. We hold pot lucks, meet at restaurants and host speakers.

Our membership is free and many of our events are free.

Anyone interested in the raw/living food diet and lifestyle is welcome!

We don't judge where you are right now with your diet and lifestyle and welcome anyone who would like to learn more about using plant-based nutrition for health and well-being!

The Las Vegas Raw Food Meetup was founded by Daryl Elliott in June 2008 and is now co-run with Ina Mohan.

WELCOME TO OUR NEXT VEGAN DINING AROUND TOWN!

This month we are visiting the brand-new Graze Kitchen, a charming full service eatery opened by long-term vegan Amelia Cooper and seasoned restaurant veterans John and Tabitha Simmons.

The menu offers an enticing array of soups, sharables, salads, sandwiches, Buddha bowls and desserts. Drinks range from fabulous healing teas to hard kombuchas, wines and coffee varieties.

PLANT-BASED FOOD WITH CHARISMA
"Graze Kitchen presents cult classics and new favorites like our Deviled Hummus, giving in to all those cravable deviled-egg vibes without cracking one shell.
We love a good drink just as much as anyone. Our drink options include swanky Kove Hard Yerba Mate’s, cult-favorite Booch Craft, and a selection of verified vegan wines. We also feature seasonal infused vodka-sodas, for those of us who like a cocktail with our Buddha bowls. "

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
*Fabulous vegan food and drinks at participating plant-based restaurants
*Your opportunity to discover exciting new places and foods
*Make new acquaintances and meet good friends
*Have a fun social outing with like-minded people
*Something nice to look forward to every month!

IMPORTANT TO KNOW:
The bills will be set up separately per person so you will only have to pay for what you order.

Please RSVP so that we can give a proper headcount to the restaurant for our group.
