Dining at a new restaurant? If you’re having a meal in a restaurant that doesn’t appear to have vegan options, talk with the restaurant ahead of time and ask them what they can do for you that’s vegan.
Invited to a dinner party? Talk with the host beforehand. If appropriate, offer to bring a vegan dish.
Attending a wedding? Check in with the couple and see what their caterer/venue can do. If you feel comfortable, you can offer to speak directly with the caterer or venue yourself.
For holiday meals, you could host the meal or bring a couple of dishes to share. Many hosts are
willing to adjust their recipes to make them vegan if you talk with them ahead of time.
Sharing is caring! At the office, consider bringing an occasional vegan dessert to share. It’s a great way to introduce your coworkers to your veganism. Check if the caterer of office meetings can do a vegan meal for you, or bring your own lunch to office meetings.
Always be gracious and considerate, of course.
