The Triangle Vegetarian Society was founded in 1986 in the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) area of North Carolina to promote the nutritional, ethical, environmental, and other aspects of vegetarianism. Open to all, we aim to build a sense of community among people of varying interests in plant-based diets, encouraging healthy, sustainable, and peaceful lifestyle choices.
We have at least two events a month - a restaurant review and at least one "potluck" meal. Some of our potlucks are purely social, while many feature a talk, panel discussion, or demonstration -- perhaps, for example, a local environmental or social justice group describing their view of issues related to ecological justice, an internationally known speaker presenting a new book or theory of nutrition, or TVS partnering with another group to present a panel discussion of ethics.
Our restaurant review group meets every month at an area restaurant and evaluates the establishment's food and service from a vegetarian point of view.
