At LUVeg, we welcome everyone - whether you've been veggie or vegan for years, months, days ... and even those of you who aren't veggie/vegan but want to see what this lifestyle is like!
As there are around 13,000 students at Lancaster, it can be quite overwhelming and you may not really know where to begin when it comes to finding likeminded students. This is where LUVeg comes in! Our purpose is to give veggies and non-veggies alike opportunities to socialise, eat good food and have a great time, and sometimes even learn some new skills from cooking demos to activism.
We love to give back to our members, so you'll all benefit from a tasty 10% discount at Roots Cafe and the Whale Tail Cafe in town (take full advantage, the food in these places is seriously delicious!)
We host fortnightly potlucks on campus where members bring veg food they've bought or made for us all to share and enjoy. Join our facebook group and you'll be invited to each one! We also love our meals out at veg-friendly resturants in Lancaster. If your more interested in learning more about the vegan and vegetarian lifestle, we do invite guest speakers to attend the university for talks and organise several film and documentary showings throughout the term to show you the wonderful positive differences you can make simply by changing what you eat. We also organise visits to Vegan/Vegetarian festivals in the North, where we get to meet like-minded people and empty our wallets on food, apparel and gifts of every kind - all cruelty-free and every penny going towards veg friendly causes!
For the first time this year, we are hosting a 30 day vegan challenge for the month of November! This will be to help people who are interested in becoming vegan or want to transition to a more plant-based lifestyle. Each week, we will be doing lots of different activities to show you the amazing difference you'll be making by simply changing the foods you eat. We also hope to show you that being vegan doesn't have to be difficult, inconvenient or complicated - it's what you make of it! Be prepared for lots of amazing food and loads of interesting facts!
We are a very relaxed, friendly society with a wonderfully diverse range of members from all walks of life, so you're sure to find a friend or two (or more hopefully!) here! We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
