Local Groups

Because being plant-based is better together. And honestly, who doesn't love a good meet-up?


It turns out one of the best places to find niche groups is through an awesome website called Meet Up! You can enter your location and what type of people you'd like to connect with (in this case vegans or plant-based folks) and the website will generate a list of existing local groups. How cool is that?

Hi! My name is Cassady Black and I am a student in Georgia State University’s coordinated program for dietetics. I have been very passionate about health, wellness and nutrition for a long time, while I have been veg-curious for a short period of time. I also love to try my hand at blogging and content curation. My ultimate goal is to start a virtual business that allows individuals easy access to solid nutrition guidance and lifestyle change!
