Go Veggies’ Vegan/Vegetarian Meetup

It’s one thing being a vegetarian and navigating your surroundings in search of the best non-meat offerings you can find – something that might take a little time to do, although the payoff is being rewarded with plenty of options in the end. It’s another thing to learn about the vegan/vegetarian community in Buffalo – groups that are doing their part to support the vegetarian food scene while connecting people who are looking to discuss the ins and outs of markets, restaurants and the general resources at hand.

Thankfully, the Buffalo Vegetarian Society and WNY Vegans have decided to come together to host a vegan/vegetarian meet-up where the growing community can meet others who are concerned about such topics as health issues, the treatment of animals in the food industry, food sourcing and even recipes and preparation techniques. The ‘grown over raised’ movement is getting stronger, and thanks to a handful of local organizations (and the people that support them), vegan and vegetarian lifestyles are becoming commonplace.

“The [upcoming] event is titled “Go Veggies’ Vegan/Vegetarian Meetup,” and is being offered by Go Veggies Café in partnership with the Buffalo Vegetarian Society and WNY Vegans. The first event is going to be January 9 from 5-7pm, and we are planning on having monthly meetups from now on. Although it is a vegan/vegetarian event, we are also welcoming anyone who is curious to learn more about veganism or vegetarianism.” -Lauren Wesp, Volunteer Organizer, Go Veggies’ Vegan/Vegetarian Meetup
