Vegan72 Restaurant Challenge to Encourage Meatless Dining
Vegan Action is hosting Vegan72, Richmond’s inaugural vegan restaurant challenge, from January 26 through 28. Although the number of people eating plant-based foods is estimated to have risen 500 percent since 2014, many restaurants still do not feature vegan options. Many Richmond chefs are up to the task of creating exciting plant-based menu items, so the challenge is for local restaurants to flex their skills with special vegan options for this weekend.
Restaurants will create appetizer, entree, dessert and brunch selections for Vegan72 and nonprofit Vegan Action will conduct cooking demonstrations, offer a vegan beer school and provide a diverse selection of dishes throughout the city..
