Chicago ranked third most vegan and vegetarian friendly city by Meetup
Meetup, an online service that helps people find groups of like-minded individuals, revealed in their end-of-the-year round-up that the ChicagoVeg group is the third largest Meetup group in the world for vegetarians and vegans. According to The Chicago Sun-Times, this makes Chicago the third friendliest city for plant-based eaters.
Chicago beat out Los Angeles for this ranking but fell below New York City and London. Chicago offers a wide array of plant-based options in multiple styles of cuisine including Indian, Jamaican, soul food, and more.
This new ranking further builds Chicago's reputation as one of the best food cities.
