Plant-Based Brevard is a community resource for people who are looking for Vegan and plant-based restaurant options in Brevard County, Florida. We also profile local plant-based foodies, provide recipes, and give info on local food artisans and plant-based events. Our goal is to provide the inside scoop in regard to all plant-based options in our area.
Plant-Based Brevard started as a little recipe group on Facebook - Just a handful of friends sharing recipes, posting restaurant meals, asking relevant questions, learning from each other, etc., but unlike many of the other veg groups, there was no talk of nutrition, no discussions about GMOs or Organic vs Conventional, and, believe it or not, no animal rights videos. Just food and that's it. This format really worked well for the founding members and it became the perfect landing pad for people who were not vegan or fully plant-based, but wanted to maybe add a Meatless Monday to their meal plan or just learn more about how to reduce their meat and dairy consumption. The group quickly became a favorite for our members -- One person added someone who added someone who added someone and you know how it goes...The group just grew from there. Now we are thriving with over 1000 members, almost ALL from Brevard County, and we are still growing with requests to join coming in daily. A couple of years ago, we started having organized get-togethers/potlucks and getting to know each other in person. Now it has grown into such an incredible community and we are all in love with it! Eventually it became evident that we needed to create a shareable database for anyone in the area who needed or wanted all the info that we share in our group, so here we are! We are all very excited to offer these resources to the residents of our county and all who visit.
