Promoting a Plant-Rich Approach to Eating

Veg-n Out Seacoast (formerly called "Planted for the Planet") is a local, grassroots initiative that works to educate the broader public on the environmental impact of a meat-oriented diet and promote a plant-rich approach to eating.  Our events encourage the public to enjoy a plant-rich meal from a local restaurant or create their own dish at home.

We congratulate the following climate-friendly restaurants and chefs who have enthusiastically joined the Veg’n Out Seacoast 2024 Restaurant Showcase.  We welcome other restaurants to contact us and join in the fun!
