Amazing Vegan Cheese Demo Last Weekend!

Chef Sandra treated a group of ten participants to a fun and educational vegan cheese class last weekend. We learned how to make veggie mac n cheese sauce, nacho cheese, and a spreadable/dipping cheese. The best part was that we got to taste them all!

Carrot Mob at Sealevel Tomorrow!

Saturday, March 21st, 6pm

Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy vegan eats and meet up with other like-minded folks. Sealevel supported Wilmington Vegan by donating food for our dining guide celebration event and purchasing AD space in the guide as well.

Let’s show our numbers and create a positive incentive for more vegan eats in Wilmington!

This is a vegan safe-space event. Please only choose vegan dishes for your meal.  

Carrot Mob takes the idea of a “flash mob” and uses a fun image of a carrot to represent the plants we love to eat. We’re a vegan mob of diners heading out to show our support to local restaurants with vegan offerings. This is fun for us and shows restaurants that there are a lot of us out there craving vegan fare. It offers a positive incentive to the restaurant – a carrot rather than a stick.

What: Wilmington Vegan Carrot Mob
Where: Sealevel City Gourmet (1015 South Kerr Ave, Wilmington, NC 28403)
When: 6pm, Saturday, March 21st, 2015

2015 Conscience Fair Fun!

Wilmington Vegan spent the day mingling with the community

Wilmington Vegan was in great company at the 2015 Conscience Fair held at Cape Fear Community College in downtown Wilmington on February 7th. It was great to see such a large turnout at an event that aims to get people involved in their local community. We enjoyed talking to both vegans and non-vegans alike about our dining guide and upcoming events. Being a table volunteer at events is a great way to become more involved with our group and talk to people about being vegan. Our next tabling event is the Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 25. Many of you found us at that particular event, so you know how successful our involvement was last year. This year, we’ll once again have handouts and smiling faces at the ready for anyone who stops by our table. If you’d like to volunteer at the table for Earth Day, email wilmingtonvegan@gmail.com.
