Charlotte Vegetarians

We've done a number of book signings this week. At every one, people have asked us if there's a vegetarian group in Charlotte. There isn't, that we know of, but there should be! If you're interested in getting together with other vegetarians in the area, post your name and contact info as a comment on this post!

There has been a vegetarian group in the past. I know this because they used to have a Thanksgiving pot-luck dinner every year, speakers, and other events that were publicized. It is the Mecklenburg Vegetarian Association, and it is currently struggling, but with enough interest perhaps it could be revived. If you are interested, write: Mecklenburg Vegetarian Association
6515 Woodland Circle Ext.
Charlotte, NC 28216
Or post a comment here -- I'm sure the MVA will be checking in to see what happens....

Yes, the MVA still exists after a fashion, at least it has not been moribund long enough to be declared officially expired. The two things that would be needed to revive the monthly pot-luck dinners are a place to meet that is free or very inexpensive, and someone to recruit speakers. In the meantime we are still meeting for lunch each month at an area restaurant.

I am interested in any vegetarian happenings. since the demise of the Peaceful Dragon restaurant, I have moped about unable to find their chef or comparable veggie fare. Can you help me out there?

Are you a vegetarian or vegan in the Charlotte community and surrounding area that would like to get to know others in the area? Would you like to learn more about which local restaurants have food we can eat? Would you be interested in monthly dine-arounds? Are you thinking of becoming a vegetarian or vegan and need a support group?

If so, email me at charlotteveggies@gmail.com to join the Vegetarian/Vegan Club of Charlotte.
