What we're about

Get together with Awesome Like Minded Vegan and raw food enthusiasts. Share stories, meals, advice, support and friendship. Attend brunch, lunch, dinner, pot lucks and other amazing fun events. Meet incredible people who share your enthusiasm for warmth, happiness, health and wellness, while saving animals, and the Planet!

We have a very warm and enthusiastic group, and most events are very well attended, but never chaotic and always perfectly suited for conversation and vegan development. It's a perfect opportunity to find incredible new friends with health and longevity in mind.

Often we host combined events with OC Raw Foods Meet Up, for an opportunity to share with our raw vegan community. Sometimes we offer speakers and special events, and even door prizes and vegan gift raffles. Events are generally held at locations known to us with guaranteed vegan and usually organic options, great food and comfortable ambiance. Meet Ups are usually free, (except your dinner check) with free parking, and we also employ directional signs and name tags to further the comfort level.

JOIN the group, TELL your friends, and PLEASE answer the new member questions and provide details, so fellow members can get to know you and look forward to each new event.

If you have ideas, suggestions, or you know of a great potential meetup location, please share. Your comments are always welcome.
