What we're about

Welcome!

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!

Online Vegan Nutrition Workshop

Online event

Join Vegan University instructor Dave, who is certified in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University, and learn Vegan Nutrition 101. New material has been added on how to keep your immune system strong in a time where COVID - 19 is mostly striking down people with chronic diseases/compromised immune systems. Please bring your questions, a writing utensil and paper so you can take notes. Scientific studies have also shown that strict vegan diets can prevent and often reverse heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, various auto-immune disorders and cancer. Dave will help you sort through the confusing and often conflicting nutrition advice in the media so you make better diet choices as you move forward on your plant-based journey.

Help, I'm Going Vegan!

Fuller Park

You want to go vegan or recently made the switch, but you have all these questions. Wouldn't it be nice if you could ask them all in one sitting and have knowledgeable and caring vegans give straight-forward answers? You know who you are. Come on out, hit us with your best questions and we'll hit you with our best answers. We'll cover nutrition, ethics, the environment, how to gently explain to grandma that her banana bread isn't vegan... and how to teach her to make it vegan! These workshops are fun, laid back, and informative. Join Vegan University hosts, Ashley and Kelsey, in Fuller Park from 7:00-8:30 pm. Feel free to come for as long as you'd like. We'll meet at the tables near the swimming pool, between the basketball courts and playground. Look for our large Vegan University sign on the table. Bring your questions, a pad of paper to take notes, a face mask, and a chair or blanket to sit on! We'll provide resources and recipes for you to take home. This workshop is not designed for people that have been vegan for a long time, so if that's you please sit this one out. If you're a longtime vegan and have friends/family/co-workers that would benefit from this workshop please share! **Follow ARC's other Meetup page, Minnesota Animal Rights Meetup, for more events!** --- Sign up for ARC’s monthly E-Newsletter: https://signup.e2ma.net/signup/39949/23220/?v=a Become an ARC Volunteer: http://animalrightscoalition.com/volunteer/ See what ARC does: http://www.arcmnveganguide.com/what-arc-does.html
