We’re awfully lucky here in Portland (Oregon). There are enough raw-foodists to support a few monthly potlucks, a mostly raw cafe and the local co-op even has a small section of the store devoted to raw food items!
Hey Josee, if you’re ever in the Toronto Area, we have raw meetups, and according to meetup.com there are 120 raw foodists in Toronto that receive and attend the various meetings we organize. Toronto sprouts (formerly Super Sprouts) has an events page and a newsletter that keeps all in the GTA updated about what’s happening.
Forever Healthy also organize a pretty nice roster of events in the GTA as well.
Simply Raw is based out of Ottawa, so they probably can give you a good idea of how many raw foodists are in your area.
Thanks for all the info!
I actually am on Simply Raw’s mailing list, and I am a member of meetup.com. Simply Raw holds monthly potlucks, but I haven’t had a chance to attend yet. I’d love to meet other raw foodists, you get kind of lonely sometimes…
If ever you’re in Ottawa, let me know, and I’ll do the same for Toronto.

rae-dean: Try checking out the potlucks on meetup.com. The next one is March 10th. It looks to be a great, diverse group of folks. I’ve been meaning to make it to one of these for a while. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at raw foodists from all ages and lifestyles.
kandace-i joined the portland meet-up. i am so excited.there was also some older gals too.thanks so much for the site.see u soon.maybe.this will be fun.do i have to tell them what i can bring or do i ask them what they want me to bring.thanks so much.

I am from Bucyrus, Ohio “Bratwurst Capital of the World” (yuck!!!) It is a small rural town. I am the only raw foodist that I know of. I signed up on meetup.com so hopefully I’ll meet people to share this journey with.
I am in Richardson, TX, wondering if there are other Dallas people here,
I am trying to find access to affordable organic produce by local farms, and still
at a loss how. Would appreciate if anyone could share information.
Hey Barose, so far you’re the only one even remotely close to me. I’m up in Ukiah, CA, about three hours north of you (dep. on traffic, of course ;o) I’m just about to try & find out if there are other raw foodies around here, haven’t looked yet. I’m sure there are, though. Nice to find out how wide-spread and diverse we are here!
Oshkosh, Wisconsin. [U.S.] Unfortunately we got have quarter coin with the cow on it. It also may have had a block of cheese. My town is a college town. Everyone’s an alcoholic, and everyone eats cheese and chugs milk.
I can’t wait to leave. O_o
There’s not anyone from Wisconsin here.. is there?
i live in a very small, pretty town in colorado…it’s called Pagosa Springs…we are near durango which is a little bit bigger and more well know of. I know their are raw foodist in durango which is an hour away but really don’t think there is much going on in my own little corner of the earth…but i do feel that because we are small town every one is more health concicous (to a certain degree) And mango woman my husband is from la crosse wis, and my best friend is from wassau.
I will be in SF May 28 through May 31, hanging out before I head up north to the Tahoe, Truckee area for a conference.
Do you know of any raw potlucks on those dates? If so, pls let me know. I live and eat raw alone here in Italy and would love to meet some other people who live the same lifestyle on my visit before I head back to Sicily, where I live for now. I will be moving to Austin TX mid summer and discovered there is a community there which will be great for me. Thanks, let me know if you can, dea.
You should join the meet ups in our area. There are two; The North Texas Meetup is in Denton, TX and meets the 3rd Sat of each month and the Not-so-North Texas Meetup is in Richardson and meets the 1st Sat of each month. I go to both. Check on meetup.com website for more info and Welcome!!!!
