What we're about

All vegan, all Chicago.

Howdy, and welcome to Vegan Chicago!

Founded in 2002 and run by long-time vegan and animal rights activists, we have extensive experience and knowledge with a passion to share. We are Chicago's vegan social & support group that provides connections and resources for being vegan in Chicago.

We welcome you regardless of how "vegan" you are. We recognize the practical part of being vegan with an eye on the larger prize. We have a Code of Conduct policy (http://www.veganchicago.com/pages/Code_of_Conduct/) in place to ensure everybody has a great time. We are also unique in that we have a science-positive mission (http://www.veganchicago.com/pages/Mission/) motivated by an ethical point of view.

For more information about what we do here at Vegan Chicago please check out our About page.

Please join us; we look forward to seeing you out at some of our many fun events, thanks!

Brightwok Kitchen Dine-Out

Brightwok Kitchen

Greetings! For the month of May, we’ll be visiting Brightwok Kitchen in the Loop! https://brightwok.com/ This vegan-friendly stir-fry restaurant boasts being dairy, gluten and peanut-free, and agave is used instead of honey. With the exception of four menu items/ingredients, everything is vegan and the woks used for each order are thoroughly cleaned before being used for future orders. Located a half block west of the Adams/Wabash train stop in the heart of the Loop, Brightwok Kitchen is very easily accessible. Please consider joining me to share a delicious meal and partake in great conversation! Hope to see you there! Debra
