Lambeth is the most vegan-friendly borough in South London and is home to the famous Ms Cupcake in Brixton. Lambeth Society has 220 members – our biggest society! Borough leaders: Clare, Margarida and Marika. Next Meeting: See below… Borough Population: 303,000. Lambeth is extremely ethnically diverse – it really is the world in one borough. This gives rise to a great diversity of food, as has been shown by Brixton Village.
Lambeth Vegans are having a Meet-Up next Wednesday, 19th March at Whole Meal Cafe in Streatham (1 Shrubbery Road, SW4 2AS, just off the high street, near Streatham Station) at 7pm.
Come along got our long-overdue get-together! The idea is to bring together like-minded people to meet, chat and eat great food!

“By changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world”.
James Cameron received National Geographic’s “Explorer of the Year” award for his successful solo dive last year to the deepest point of the Pacific Ocean. James used the organization’s 125th-anniversary gala to share his new-found solution to saving the Earth.“I’ve had an epiphany recently,” Cameron told the audience. “I want to challenge all of you as people of deep conscience, people who are environment stewards of the earth and oceans. . . . By changing what you eat, you will change the entire contract between the human species and the natural world. Cameron said he went vegan a year ago and urged everyone in the room to do the same. “I felt like I was waking up from a long sleepwalk,” he said. “I believe we are all sleepwalking off a cliff if we don’t do this.” The Oscar-winning director with a fortune of $700 million or so has been a vocal supporter and has put his money where his mouth is for various green causes. People, he said, are always asking him what they can do to make a difference for the planet. He says he used to give the standard answers: — electric cars, solar panels — but now believes going vegan is, by far, the most important thing anyone can do. Watch him speak on Youtube.
Caroline and her husband are vegans living in Toronto, Canada. They have created a website for vegans and the vegan-curious. It’s (probably) the world’s first vegan food spotting website. Their goal is to put every vegan dish, at every restaurant in the world, on a big Google map. They currently have over 1500 dishes mapped around the world, including some in England, Canada, United States, Australia, Scotland, China, France, Singapore, Norway, and India. New dishes are being added by the community every day, and we are building new features all the time.
Take a look at Vegan Food Is Everywhere – here at London Vegan Societies we believe that this can grow into an amazing tool for vegans everywhere, but we need help adding dishes and spreading the word.
Together, we can debunk the myth that it’s difficult to dine out as a vegan!
