Great place to Network

RAVS is such a great way to network and learn about the benefits of eating plants. The group meets frequently and brings in guest speakers who always offer educational insights on various topics. One of the best things is before the group meeting there is typically a social event where people bring a dish to pass. Check out their website if you want to learn more. https://rochesterveg.org/

Pros: Meet local vegans and vegetarians, Try new dishes during the evening socials, Free education and various topics

Cons: None
