Heh, I love how desolate this thread is! I don't know if there are any other Kansans out there or not, but if so, go ahead and post here, maybe we can organize some KS discussions or at least find some ppl around here of likeminds
no matter when, I'll continue to check back!

I used to live in Kansas...does that count? I've been in Nebraska for over ten years though. Is it still as hard to eat veg*n as is use to be down there?

It sure is. I have been looking for stores that sell and there far and few in between. And the same goes for eating out. But I'll keep on looking.

Good lord, this is just sad!! I live in Ellis ... Population around 2000? 15 miles west of Hays? Anyone? Western Kansas? Halfway between Kansas City and Denver? Does that make it a little easier to find??

I have not had much trouble with vegetarian stuff around here - since finding the "natural" section of the grocery store I go to, I've been in heaven ... Going vegan would surely be another story, but I think it would be possible.

I'm going to Kansas next month!


I went there for a week last summer... my best friend moved to Lawrence for college so I try to go as often as I can, which isn't enough. It's nice seeing all the green. And, KU has a very, very nice gym.

I agree, PSUs recreation facility is ghetto in comparison.

I'm going to Kansas, probably sometime in July, not looking forward

so, kansans... theres a college program in kansas that i would totally go to if it were not for my fears of non vegan friendly republicans , so my question is how easy is it to be an atheist, anarchist, feminist vegan at kansas state university? are there other vegans at least in town?

im a portlander, so im use to all sorts of friendly veganness here, and dont really want to leave it for 2 years if i dont know what im getting into....

its the bakery science program i would go to, its the only one in the country.

There are at least other vegans in town but Manhattan is very, very, very different from Portland.

Susie - As Remilard said, Manhattan is pretty much on the opposite end of the spectrum from Portland. However, I will say that Manhattan is (as far as I know) more veggie-friendly than Hays, which is out west and where I go to school at. Because it's a university town, I don't think you should fear the conservatives too much
- from what I've seen, university towns are typically more open. And, since it is temporary (2 years is not too bad), I think you would be fine.
Best of luck, whatever you decide!

kansas isn't so bad - i lived there for about 3 years or so. i went to wichita state for most of my college career. i didn't spend a lot of time in manhattan, but i did go sometimes (my loser ex's ex-best friend's dad own's lucky mac's liquor store).

wichita has so many restaurants that i'm sure it isn't too bad, but i hadn't yet given up eggs, dairy or chicken when i lived there, so i can't say for certain.

anyway, i miss wichita
remilard, don't fear, ks isn't as bad as you think.

and i'm a very democratic vegan

I'm surprised there's not more KS veg*ns. Maybe not... my doctor didn't even know what veganism was.... could be because I'm in north eastern KS... regardless, people seem pretty open to it as far as I can tell

I'm a Kansas veg*n. I live in central KS (Hutchinson) and there's not terribly much in the way of veg*nism here... Bringing vegan cookies just confused my history class.

There is this yoga sort of spiritualization with nature thing that always has vegan foods and such once a month that some artistic group hers sponsors, but I've never been there. I know maybe two other vegetarians here?

It's rough at times, but over all, it's okay.

However, I'd laugh at anyone trying to be veg at KSU... I don't know if that's possible, however, Kansas University and Wichita State University may be easier, especially KU and their liberal hippieness. (Which is why I'm probably going to KU.)

Wow, this has been dead for awhile... anyway.. I'm gonna be making frequent trips to Manhattan this comming month (like weekly for awhile) and will most likely need to find some places to grab a bite to eat at. I'm not too far from there, but considering how long it'll take to go back & fourth + how long I'll be there... anyway... just wondering if there's any good resturaunts there that have vegan friendly items/options.

I used to live in Manhattan (about 10+ years ago). I wasn't veg at the time. But I do remember that the Lone Star / Hibachi Hut (where I worked) had decent veg options, and Rusty's bar had a GREAT veggie sandwich (and dangerous Long Island Teas). I saw some great bands in Manhattan, and partied my ass off!

Lawrence isn't too far away, and has a VERY strong alternative/punk/bluegrass/jazz scene. Plenny veg food to be found.
