9 Vegan Restaurants to Go to Around VCU

9 Vegan Restaurants to Go to Around VCU

It’s a fact that there aren’t many options for those who have a vegan diet on campus, especially if you are a freshman and forced to have a dining plan. I’ve found that one of the biggest questions for those in that position is this: Are there any places that are vegan friendly off campus? I don’t want to eat the same thing everyday.

So, in honor of World Vegan Day, I’ve decided to make a quick list of some vegan-friendly places to go to near the VCU Monroe Park Campus. The best part? All of my suggestions have been vegan-approved by fellow VCU students.

*As a disclaimer, I do not have a vegan or vegetarian diet. I am just extremely passionate about people having the opportunity to eat good food, regardless of their dietary or medical restrictions.
