National Vegetarian Week 2015 starts on Monday and is organised by the Vegetarian Society and sponsored by ‘Nothing But’. This year it’s all about sharing and enjoying delicious veggie food with your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours and community. It’s a great way to connect with those around you and explore tasty meat-free food together.

Vegetarian food is vibrant, exciting and flavourful, whether it’s the plentiful choices at the supermarket or special menu items at a restaurant. On top of satisfying your taste buds, going vegetarian and eating meat-free food benefits animals, the environment and your health and wellbeing. Joining in with National Vegetarian Week is simple, and there are many ways to be involved.

They say the best things in life are free – well, you can’t get better than free pizza during National Vegetarian Week. This May the Vegetarian Society is visiting seven cities across the UK giving out free pizza slices and celebrating how food brings people together.
The Vegetarian Society and its cookery school will be touring the UK covering almost 800 miles and creating delicious pizzas to share. Pop along to one of the venues, watch our cookery school whip up a pizza, help choose the toppings then taste the fruits of their labour. There'll be a chance to chat and pick up a freebie pack.

Here are the seven locations -  head along between 11:30 and 14:30 to get a slice of pizza:
18 May – Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Northumberland Street South
19 May – Glasgow, Sauchiehall Street
20 May – Belfast, SS Nomadic, Titanic Quarter
21 May – Liverpool, Church Street
22 May – Leicester, Humberstone Gate West
23 May – Reading, Broad Street
24 May – Cardiff, Working Street

The Vegetarian Society’s Chief Executive Lynne Elliot said, “We wanted to get out and share delicious veggie food with as many people as possible during the week. Recent studies have shown that around 20% of the population are choosing to eat more meat-free meals so this is great way for us to show how tasty vegetarian food can be - and what better to share than pizza!”
