What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/f/6/6/event_23153094.jpeg

Even if you are not vegan yet, our main goal is to meet other kind, compassionate, and healthy seeking people monthly at various times of the the month for potlucks and/or presentations, speakers, educational DVDs. We also have monthly dine outs, fitness excursions, book clubs and any other ideas you have regarding health, animal welfare and earth sustainablilty. When we have potlucks or snacks, please bring a plant based or vegan dish or snack (no dairy or eggs) to our potlucks so that everyone can eat all the dishes. We do not want to include eggs, dairy, or meat as we do not want to contribute to the suffering or early death of egg laying chickens or dairy cows.

THIS meetup group is for EVERYONE interested in becoming compassionate and healthy too. This is for YOU and we make this successful by joining here together to make our events successful! We NEED you to make our compassionate and healthy vegan movement move ahead!! Thank you for joining us no matter where you are on your path to a vegan lifestyle! Our cooking classes can help you transiiton to VEGAN!!! We look forward to meeting you!! WE ALSO APPRECIATE IT YOU COULD BRING OIL FREE SNACKS OR DISHES SO WE VEGANS CAN KEEP OUR HEARTS HEALTHY AND KEEP IDEAL BODY WEIGHT FOR HEALTH. (If you want to know why we omit added oils like olive oil, coconut oil, and all vegetable oils, please email me, Linda, at veganmentor@gmail.com).

Our members care about their health, animal welfare and protection of the earth. It is free to sign up with us on Sac Vegan Society Meetup.
