What we're about

What's this? A friendly, welcoming, supportive group of herbivores, vegans, vegetarians, WFPB eaters, and veg-friendly KC locals? Oh my!

We have Monthly restaurant get-togethers, occasional vegan potlucks and other events... it's a great way to explore new foods, learn from others and make new friends.

Hanging out with us is very un-intimidating! Everyone is super-friendly and there are always new people to meet!

Our events are very laid back and relaxed with minimal structure so that you have the chance to just visit and talk to other members while enjoying great food.
