The VegDining.com Story
What better way is there to introduce a friend to vegetarianism than to invite him or her
for dinner at a fully vegetarian restaurant ?
It was with this in mind that the seeds for VegDining.com were planted in the summer of
Our mission is simply ...
"To do our best to promote vegetarian restaurants - and vegetarianism in general -
around the world."
We developed a prototype for our website in June, tested our concept through the summer
and officially launched VegDining.com in September of 1999.
The rest, as they say, is vegetarian history.
Vegetarian Groups Are Important To Us
Although our focus at VegDining.com is on vegetarian restaurants, we'll never
forget our roots as vegetarian activists (you bet, we've spent hundreds of hours
tabling at community events, organizing cooking demos, doing media interviews,
publishing newsletters, hosting out-of-town speakers, cleaning up after potlucks,
you name it we've done it).
You won't find bigger vegetarian group supporters than VegDining.com !
Through group memberships, event sponsorships, prize purchases, advertising, free banner
ad offers and more, we try to help vegetarian groups every chance we can.
To prove our point and to encourage other businesses to follow our lead, here's a list
of some of the vegetarian groups we've supported over the year ...
International Vegetarian Union
Vegetarian Union of North America
Vegetarian Resource Group
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
Farm Animal Reform Movement
