BloomingVeg

Description: 

BloomingVeg is an all-ages social and advocacy group for vegetarians, vegans, and veggie-lovers alike in Bloomington, Indiana. BloomingVeg was founded in 2012 in part to organize outings, helping at the local animal sanctuary, promoting & publicizing vegan dining options in Bloomington, leafleting, demonstrating at circuses and engaging in other friendly efforts to help others live more compassionately.

Also because eating is such a social aspect of our lives, we wanted to provide a venue for fun gatherings like Meatless Monday dinners at local  restaurants, potlucks, holiday cookie swaps and more among like-minded people.

If you are a long time vegan or vegetarian, just starting out or maybe you just like eating vegan food--BloomingVeg has something for you.
