3 August 2017

If you love keeping your finger on the pulse of fab food then you are going to love National Vegetarian Week 14-20 May 2018!

This year already saw a romance growing between the UK and National Vegetarian Week with the Hairy Bikers fronting the campaign, over 100 community events and 500 mentions of the week in the media. Add to that the One Show giving a shout out to the week, plus #nationalvegetarianweek trending for ten hours across the UK on Twitter  and you can see the love starting to blossom.

Lynne Elliot, Chief Executive, the Vegetarian Society said, “Everyone loves great food and National Vegetarian Week 2018 is going to be so exciting. We’ll be announcing our plans shortly, but for now make sure you have the date in your diary – National Vegetarian Week, 14-20 May 2018.”

The Vegetarian Society is a national charity that is passionate about veggie food! It’s kinder to your body, kinder to animals, kinder to the planet – and it tastes amazing! Visit for more information.

•National Vegetarian Week 2017 saw events happening across the country. There was a school sandwich competition, a film about veggie BBQs, urban community chefs rustled up veggie food to share, hundreds of elderly people received special home-made snack boxes featuring baked treats made and distributed by 16 to 25 year old volunteers. These were just some of the 100+ events put on by community groups, schools, universities, colleges, Brownies, individuals and others – all of which were awarded grants to help their communities get stuck in to National Vegetarian Week. The grants awarded by the Vegetarian Society ranged from £30 to £2,000, helping to make possible both large-scale and smaller more intimate National Vegetarian Week celebrations happen all across the UK.
