Vegan Food News, powered by the Ultimate Guide, our online database of vegan and vegetarian restaurants and veg-owned businesses.
Bay Area Vegetarians is starting a book club that will read nonfiction vegan and animal rights topics, and the occasional fiction story that has a vegan theme. (If you are a long-time member, then we are “restarting” the book club.)
There’s some wonderful books out there. If you’d like to read more books (and enjoy vegan food during the discussions), then maybe this is the book club for you! Read the rest of this entry »

American Canyon couple promotes vegan lifestyle
One of the goals of Bay Area Vegetarians is to support and connect the veg*n community, as plant-eaters are still a minority. Sometimes it can range from irritating to frustrating to daunting or even overwhelming to live in a flesh-eating world, particularly for those who are new to veg*nism or new to the area. Note: veg*n is shorthand for both vegan and vegetarian
With that in mind, we became an instant supporter of Lew’s idea to start a support group in our area. (More info about Lew and his interest in this topic below) We have some ideas about this, and would love to get your input about this, too.
13,890 leaflets, to be precise. That’s how many leaflets our volunteers distributed to individuals at Bay Area colleges in the Spring and Fall 2014 semesters, and in recent outreach at the Vallejo Farmer’s Market in October and November of this year.
We’re gardeners, planting the seeds of compassion and good health for the next crop of vegans and vegetarians.
Join us for our final outreach activity for the year — Saturday, Dec 20th at the Vallejo Farmer’s Market.
