Vegan Things to Do in LA This Weekend: November 23-25
We search the web for the best vegan things to do in the city, so you don’t have to. Here’s what’s happening this weekend.
All Weekend Long
VegOut Vegan Food Drive
VegOut Los Angeles is teaming up with LA vegan restaurants and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to host a vegan food drive for the month of November. Help us pack the food bank with vegan food by dropping off vegan non-perishables at participating restaurants all November long!
