What diet/lifestyle do you follow? For how long? Why?

We are committed vegans, no leather, no animal ingredients, all the way, for moral reasons. We were vegetarian first, but the undeniable evidence of the suffering of dairy animals and " free range" chickens made us go vegan.

What types of activities are you interested in for this meetup?

Making new friends, advocacy, healthy food in good company. We would prefer meeting people in a home setting rather than restaurants. Perhaps, the group should teach people how to cook delicious vegan food and have a tent at various festivals to educate.

What is your favorite local veg-friendly restaurant?

Honestly, really! tasty vegan food is hard to find. We are reluctant to support restaurants that accommodates vegans but serve meat. The lotus has a delicious vegan buffet but it gets very crowded and loud, Love Food Cafe on Central ave is super nice and Leafy green. we also like Mangia that offers a few vegan options on open mike night, crazy Gulfport stuff..

Besides veg*nism, what three issues are you most passionate about?

Animal rights, organic farming, environmental welfare, fighting corporate politics and careless consumerism, Opps! that more than three


My name is Brigitte Wallace, my husband is Ian Wallace. We live in St Petersburg. We are looking forward to meet people of kindred spirit. Lately have been staying at home a lot to care for our senior dogs

What Brigitte W. is saying about this Meetup Group

How about new venues and especially a regular potluck in someone's home. Ian and I would gladly host the first one in our home in Gulfport. With thanksgiving around the corner it might be too late for this month , but how does the second Saturday ( or Friday)
