What we're about

This group is open to anyone who is interested in or curious about vegan food and the vegan lifestyle. We plan to host a wide range of fun vegan events both indoors and outdoors. Think potlucks, movies, dinners, dineouts, hiking, camping, baking, recipe exchanges, discussions, sporting events, book clubs, etc. We started this group because we wanted to amp up the frequency and fun factor of vegan get-togethers in the South Bay and the Peninsula.
