What we're about


This group is for meeting fellow vegans and for people who want to become vegan or find out if veganism is for them. If you're looking for guidance and support in making a transition to veganism, you've come to the right place. You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to join this group, but please be sincerely interested in learning more about veganism.

Let's celebrate an animal and earth-friendly life!

Minneapolis Vegan Meetup is sponsored by the Animal Rights Coalition's (http://www.animalrightscoalition.com) Vegan University (http://www.animalrightscoalition.com/veganuniversity) program, which is designed to help you go – and stay – vegan in a way that works for you. Vegan University offers free Vegan Grocery Shopping Tours, Help! I’m Going Vegan, Plant-based Nutrition, Vegan Meal Planning, and Vegan on a Budget workshops, and a Vegan Mentor program, as well as cooking classes and Vegan Community Circle discussion groups. We’re here to help you get you across that finish line in your transition to a plant-based diet!

Thank you VegFund for your support of our programs!

River Market Plant-Based Meal Planning Workshop

Needs a location

Are you vegan and having a hard time composing complete and healthy meals? Or maybe you’re interested in eating plant-based but have no idea where to start?

If so, join experienced vegan meal planner, Emily, for an in-depth workshop where she will review what it means to be vegan, how to stock your kitchen, easy recipes and meal ideas, tips and tricks, resources and more! Learn how to plan ahead, combine flavors, and incorporate new foods into your meals. Take away easy, last-minute food options for when your fridge looks empty or how to order out when you’re in a pinch.

This workshop is being offered through the River Market Community Co-Op and costs $5 to attend. You can find out more information and register to attend on their website here: https://www.universe.com/events/plant-based-meal-planning-workshop-new-date-tickets-stillwater-GT0B75

After registration, an email link to join this presentation through Zoom will be emailed to you as well as a handout that we will be using in the class. Please plan to connect to the Zoom meeting 5-10 minutes early to troubleshoot the technology and get settled in before class starts.
