We are hosting the first ever “Le Vegan Week,” a week designed to support local restaurants and create a fun Covid-friendly event where people can enjoy a feast of vegan dishes, support the local restaurant scene, and support a local charity too! The theme is “vegan comfort food” so while it is chilly outside in Winnipeg this week can warm people up by trying something new and supporting local businesses. Voting will take place all week long on the VegFest website and a winner will be announced at the end of the week.
From January 17 – 23, 2021 a host of local restaurants have whipped up delicious vegan menu items especially for Le Vegan Week. Each restaurant has contributed a participation fee of $50 and all proceeds will be going to The Good Place, a local animal sanctuary.
Eat from your favourite places or choose something new! Enjoy a delicious meal and then vote for your favourites! Vote for your favourite dish here. After voting please consider making a donation to The Good Place: Farm Rescue & Sanctuary.
