Natural Awakenings Naples and Fort Myers

First Vegan Restaurant Week in Fort Myers, Cape Coral

Providing a healthy, delicious way for us to help the local economy and worthy causes, six local eateries will feature plant-based dishes during the inaugural Vegan Restaurant Week from February 12 to 26. Diners at Chef Brooke’s Natural Cafe, Living Vine Organic Cafe and Green Cup, in Fort Myers; and Café YOU, Life – The Vegan Drive Thru and the Loving Hut, in Cape Coral, can register for prizes that include $50 gift certificates and $100 cash prizes for those that visit all of them during this period. 

“The mission of Vegan Restaurant Week is to support plant-based restaurants in these difficult times and to spread awareness of the benefits of a plant-based diet through a fun, innovative and community-based experience,” says Dr. Sal Lacagnina, president of nonprofit Lifestyle Solutions Healthy Planet, which is organizing the event. “A diet based on whole, plant-based foods can benefit your health, reduce animal cruelty and help save the environment.”

Each participating restaurant practices all COVID-19 protocols, as well as offering takeout. Most also provide omnivore selections. All event proceeds will go toward supporting area charities.
