Each month our Recipe Club will feature a different recipe blog, cookbook author, or crowdsourced contribution. We will explore food from a variation of sources and cuisines, while learning about how many cultures contribute to the foods we eat and the vegan staples we love. If you haven’t already learned about the expansiveness and diversity of vegan options available, you will during our time together!

All are welcome to join our Recipe Club. If you need some inspiration in the kitchen, are curious to learn more, or just want to join in on the fun – this club is for you!

The best part (besides of course eating the food when you’re done), is each delicious and healthy recipe is 100% vegan, meaning no animal products or by-products will be used.

Each meal helps animals and the environment, while also building our community through outreach, education, support, and advocacy.
