L.O.V.E. PROJECT

L.O.V.E. is an acronym for “Let’s Offer Vegan Eats,” a sentiment we can all get behind! We are excited to bring this program to Grand Rapids to encourage local restaurants to consider offering vegan menu items for an ever-growing population. L.O.V.E. was started by GR VegFest and Plant Based Roots and is guided by project manager Kris Miller

Most of us have been to restaurants chosen by friends or family, or perhaps chosen out of location convenience, and were dismayed to scour the menu for vegan options to no avail. Restaurants may be able to accommodate vegans with dishes already offered, but they are at a loss of what substitutions, additions, or eliminations would make this possible. Most of us would not prefer a dry side salad as our only option.

The L.O.V.E. program hopes to help lessen the occurrences of these situations by providing restaurants and their staff with the information needed to create and offer delicious vegan dishes. As we contact and work with different restaurants to increase their knowledge, quantity, and quality of vegan menu items, we will provide an updated list of the places that offer vegan eats.

Most of us have been to restaurants chosen by friends or family, or perhaps out of location convenience, and were dismayed to scour the menu for vegan options to no avail.  Many times, too, inquiring about vegan possibilities from the kitchen wait staff only results in responses of uncertainty as to what ingredients this would eliminate.  Restaurants may be able to accommodate vegans with dishes already offered, but they are at a loss of what substitutions, additions, or eliminations would make this possible.  Most of us don’t want a dry side-salad as our only option.
