Philadelphia Ranks Amongst the Worst Cities for Vegetarians & Vegans According to a Recent Study!
People choose to adopt plant-based diets for various reasons, some ethical, others health-related. According to a 2019 Harris Poll commissioned by the Vegetarian Resource Group, about ten million U.S. adults are vegan or vegetarian.
But finding meatless options at restaurants and supermarkets can be a challenge, depending on where you find yourself hungry in America. And though some experts contend that forgoing animal products could save the average person at least $750 per year, certain specialty foods can be expensive.

According to WalletHub’s study, Philly ranks #69 out of 100 cities of that are vegetarian & vegan friendly. See the full list below:
