DECEMBER 5, 2018 ⇨

Join the Vegan Iron Chef planning crew! Help organize our 2019 events, get rad experience, and dig into making a city-wide cook-off happen once again! This first open meeting will be held at 6pm at Hatch Lab PDX at NE 24th + Sandy. More info.

JANUARY 19, 2019 ⇨

Our Vegan Cookbook Club is back with a Veganomicon-themed potluck & discussion group! Really, what could be more fun on a Saturday night? We’ll announce the book and dates of a Spring addition following this one. Here’s what to know.

JUNE 22, 2019 ⇨

Gosh, you simply must mark your calendar Saturday, 6/22 for one heck of a vibrant mini vegan-food-fest TBD at Lagunitas Community Room in NE Portland.

We're talking the best (and newest!) of Portland's growing pop-up scene and indie, email us if you'd like to get involved!


As we grow our planning crew for 2019 (hi! hi!), we'll be holding monthly meetings to make exciting things happen! Be sure to email us and check our FB for when + where.

++ PLUS! PLUS! ⇨

We are currently recruiting for both our Board of Directors (Portland metro area preferred) and new Advisory Committee (remote is great! this one is for chill insiders!) So, if you believe in the power of vegan food + community, let's talk!

More info and sign-up forms are on our “Get Involved” page. Both would look super good on your resume, we reckon – and help make the world a better (& deliciously vegan) place.


Join the VIC crew!

We’re holding an open meeting on Dec. 5th, with monthly editions to follow in 2019.
