What we're about

Public Group

The purpose of the Very Vegetarian Society is to provide education and support to those who are vegan or who want to become vegan. As interest in veganism grows in Winston Salem and the country, we look forward to continuing to educate and support vegans in their quest for information.

Our meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at Miller Park Recreation Center. Meeting time is 6:30 p.m. Our meetings include a vegan potluck dinner and are open to anyone who is interested in veganism whether you have been a vegan for years or just starting out. You do not need to be a member to attend our meetings. We do ask that the dishes you bring for the potlucks be vegan, not just vegetarian.

The Very Vegetarian Society of Winston Salem was founded in 1990 by Anne and Wes Weaver. They were inspired to start their own vegetarian group after attending Summerfest (by the North American Vegetarian Society) and listening to the wonderful speakers in attendance. Several of our members attend Summerfest every year. Visit our website at for more information about our group.

We ask that you bring a vegan dish (no meat, dairy or eggs) to serve 8. Please bring a copy of your recipe to share. We request that you bring your own eating utensils, plates and cup.

This group is organized by Colleen Houck, Debbie Leonard, Dennis Robinson, Lisa Irwin, and Lorena Stephenson.
