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!

Cupcakes (etc!) for Roosters' Sake

Ethique Nouveau

Join us for an all-vegan bake sale to benefit the incredible work of Rooster Redemption. Rooster Redemption is a 501(c)3 Non Profit sanctuary located in Minnesota where roosters rule. *Please bring your own containers for goodies!* ​Why a rooster rescue? ​Roosters (male chickens) are the most abandoned, unwanted, exploited, and stigmatized land animal on the planet. Due to their need for specialized care and accommodations, they are extremely difficult to find homes for. ​ RR devotes time, energy, and patience toward these birds who are the underdogs in the rescue world. Funds raised through the sale will be used for building improvements, including a large aviary to be built this spring. Chelsea will be baking Cinnamon Sugar Donut Cupcakes AND Chocolate Mint Cupcakes for your eating pleasure, and there will be many more treats created by generous volunteers. You can preorder cupcakes by emailing [masked] If you have interest in baking goodies to contribute, please email Chelsea (email above) or Ashley at [masked] :)
