You don’t have to be someone who abstains from animal products to enjoy Vegan Dining Month, returning to Portland for the fourth time this January.

Vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike will find something tasty to eat at the 21 participating restaurants, pop-ups, and food carts across the Rose City, with a variety of new plant-based dishes gracing their menus. A portion of the proceeds from every order will benefit Meals On Us PDX.

This national event was started in 2017 by vegan dining and living influencer Diane Edelman of Vegans, Baby in Las Vegas. Since then, it’s spread to multiple cities, including Eugene, Seattle, and New York City. Nonprofit Veganuary also supports the campaign.
