22 December 2016 



National Vegetarian Week 15 – 21 May 2017 is all about getting stuck in and going veggie for the week. Visit  to get tasty recipe inspiration from bloggers, chefs and foodies.  While you are there sign up to newsletters, discover delicious discounts and find fun fab freebies. Go on – get stuck in! 

If you are involved in a community organisation or social group and fancy putting together an event for the week or perhaps you already have an event organised but would like to get stuck in and make the catering veggie then we have grants available. Just visit

Lynne Elliot, Chief Executive of the Vegetarian Society, said: “National Vegetarian Week 2016 saw events happening across the country. Seventy-seven grants were awarded to groups and individuals organising events for National Vegetarian Week – this year we really want to build on this and make it even easier for community groups to get stuck in so if you have an idea for a great veggie event for 2017 do visit the website and apply for a grant!”  

The Vegetarian Society is a national charity that influences, inspires and supports people to embrace and maintain a vegetarian lifestyle. Being a vegetarian is a choice that is kinder to animals, to people and to our planet. Visit for more information.
