Start a Vegan Meet-Up!

One way to help support vegans in your area is to start a Vegan Meet-Up at Many new vegans (and old vegans, too!) go to to see what is in their area. You can help provide social support for other vegans by starting a Vegan MeetUp if there isn't one already in your area. You might also meet people who want to get involved in activism.(Please note that there is a $19 monthly fee for each MeetUp group; members usually chip in at events to cover this fee.)

Get started here.

You can also look at the Vegan Outreach Contacts page to see if there are people in your area.


Product of the Week

Erika Killen writes: "I'd like to nominate the Trader Joe's 'Meatless Meatballs' and also their 'Roasted Garlic Marinara' for your product of the week. Together with their whole wheat penne pasta and a nice salad you have a lovely, healthy, and scrumptious dinner."

Send your nominees for Product of the Week to info (at); previous products can be found here.


Notes from All Over

Vegan Ultramarathoner Wins Badwater Again

Via "When the National Park Service records the official daily maximum temperature, it takes the measurement in the shade. On Monday, it reached 123 degrees Fahrenheit."

"Naturally, given these conditions that morning, a group of 85 runners assembled at the dry lake bed known as Badwater, 280 feet below sea level, the lowest, often hottest point in the Western Hemisphere -- to race in the Badwater Ultramarathon. Organizer Chris Kostman describes it nicely as 'the most demanding and extreme running race offered anywhere on the planet.'"


Notes from Our Members

Good job to whoever is leaving your booklets in the Dayton Metro libraries -- I picked one up at the library on Far-Hills Ave. I had no idea -- NO IDEA. We are vegetarian as of yesterday. I want to tell you what a great booklet that is -- the pictures and stories were very hard to look at/ read, but I am glad to know the truth. I do not want to be any part of that industry. I will be back on your website later for recipes -- just wanted you to know you have made a big difference in at least two people in Dayton (myself and my daughter, age 12).

You guys are awesome! I really respect all that you do and I love the fact that you're not preachy, offensive, or radical. You are very down-to-earth and sensible! I got your Why Vegan pamphlet a little while ago in the mail and it has really helped me make the switch!
