Vegan Dining Month Returns to Las Vegas This January
This will be the vegan event’s fifth year running and will include participation from a variety of local restaurants.
For the fifth year in a row, Vegan Dining Month is returning to Las Vegas for the month of January. Restaurants across the city will be participating in the event, with dedicated vegan items on their menus.
Vegan Dining Month Helps Rescue Animals
Vegan Dining Month will begin on January 1, 2022 and run for the entire month of January. The event is hosted by Vegans, Baby and is sponsored by Pleese Foods, a plant-based cheese brand that makes meltable vegan cheese crafted from potato protein.
Since Vegan Dining Month’s inception five years ago, the event has helped Vegas diners become exposed to plant-based foods across a variety of cuisines while providing support for those participating in the Veganuary challenge.
In addition, the event has raised more than $15,000 for various charities and nonprofits centered around animal welfare. This year, a portion of the proceeds from each participating restaurant will be donated to The Churchill Foundation, a local nonprofit focused on rescuing animals from area shelters, with an emphasis on helping those animals suffering from major medical and behavioral issues.
More Than 30 Restaurants Join Vegan Dining Month
More than 30 Las Vegas restaurants will be participating in this year’s event, with several of the restaurants joining Vegan Dining Month as first-timers. Throughout the month, diners can enjoy special vegan menus at non-vegan establishments and will also find some favorite dishes at vegan restaurants marked for the event, such as the famed “Big Zac” burger at Plant Power.
Several restaurants will offer prix fixe menus, including VegeNation, Valencian Gold, Queen of Hearts, and Main St. Provisions. Other participating restaurants include Graze Kitchen, Plant Power, Tacos & Beer, and The JOLT Coffee Co.
