Another Succesful Vegan Food Tasting!

Everyone enjoyed the meatless meatballs, mac & cheese, pizza, sandwiches, and chocolate chip cookies at the VegMichigan Vegan Food Tasting in February at the House of Yoga! Your support allows us to keep introducing more people to great tasting vegan food.

Fun Times at the VegMichigan Dinner Club!

We had a wonderful time at our January dinner club at GreenSpace Cafe! Our monthly dinner clubs are a great place to catch up with old friends and make some new ones! See our Dinner Club page.

VegMichigan Library Displays Get Noticed

VegMichigan’s library displays are up every month promoting the benefits of a plant-based diet. In January we have displays up at the Northville and Wayne Public libraries . Library Displays Page

VegMichigan’s College Outreach Program

Oakland University students Angela and Eric help with VegMichigan’s new college outreach program. We have distributed educational material at Oakland University, Eastern Michigan University, and Schoolcraft College, with more to come. We are also working with a number of student organizations to bring speakers, documentaries, and vegan food sampling to their campus. If you would like VegMichigan to come to your school, email tom@vegmichigan.org for more information.
