‘Tis the Season
It’s beginning to look a lot like… a month dedicated to giving and feasting! A month that resonates with us very, very well.
We’re getting into the holiday spirit at Virtuous Pie with holiday features, gift ideas, and community dinners that give back. We’ve also got some exciting announcements for Toronto, and an undisclosed location… you’ll just have to keep reading to find out what we’re talking about!
Miso Cashew Gravy, Cranberry + Walnut Stuffing, Rosemary Soy Curls, Herbed Potato Cream, Cranberry Sauce, Fresh Chives.
For every Holiday pizza sold, we will donate $1 to Sheway (in Vancouver), Red Lodge Transition Services (in Portland), and Second Harvest (in Toronto). If you’re not into the Holiday Pizza, but still feel like donating, we invite you to round up your bill or make a donation of any amount you would like!

PDX ART SHOW: BLOOM
We’re excited to host another art exhibition in Portland, this time by one of our very own staff: Madison Inama.
“This collection, BLOOM, is especially important to me because it allowed me to show the simplicity and beauty of our environment that we so often look beyond. We tend to look past the nature and don’t recognize it for all that it does for us, so this collection is here to show you the intricacy and importance of Mother Nature through a new perspective of clean lines displayed with appreciation,” says Madison.
We will be showing BLOOM until mid-January, with pieces available for purchase come the end of the show!
On Monday, December 31st, we are hosting our second annual all vegan New Year’s Eve Dinner from 6-9pm at Virtuous Pie PDX! The evening will feature a four-course plated dinner curated by our Head Chef with proceeds going to Red Lodge Transition Services. Tickets are $60 and available now!
