Vegan72   Richmond’s First Plant-Powered Weekend

Vegan Action is hosting Richmond, Virginia’s first ever vegan restaurant challenge January 26-28, 2018! The number of people eating plant-based foods has risen 500% since 2014, but so many restaurants do not feature vegan options. We know Richmond chefs are up to the task of creating exciting plant-based menu items, so we’ve challenged area restaurants to flex their skills with special vegan options for this weekend only. Restaurants will create appetizer, entree, dessert and brunch selections for V72 throughout the weekend. In addition, we’re also celebrating our city’s amazing, existing plant-based offerings.  Some venues will donate a percentage of their Vegan72 sales to FeedMore – the Central Virginia Food Bank.

We will have a passport listing each location – collect a sticker from at least 4 locations and get a complementary vegan donut at Sugar Shack!
