Potluck, Prizes, and Film!

This is another joint event between ChicagoVeg and Chicagoland Independent & Documentary Films (CIDFilms) groups which will consist of two independent parts: a plant-based potluck and a film screening. You are welcome to join us for either (just the potluck or just the film) or for both. The potluck will start at 6:00 and the film will start at approximately 7:30 pm.

For potluck please bring:

  • A 100% plant-based (vegan) dish to share to serve 5 -7 people
  • A note with a list of ingredients and your name in case some may have allergies or questions
  • Although we will supply them, we encourage you to bring your own plates/bowl/utensils/drinking cup (to be more eco-friendly)
  • Please check what other people will bring and specify what dish you plan to bring in the RSVP Comment section so all of us won't bring a potato salad!

The food you bring can be prepared by you or bought from a store/restaurant as long as you know ALL ingredients. House of Ayurveda will provide beverages for us.

At 7:30 PM we plan to watch documentary Ingredients:

"Ingredients was one of the most expertly crafted and most effective documentaries about food that I have ever seen." – Eric Shlapak, Examiner.com

The film will follow by the film discussion and socializing.

We will have a free raffle as House of Ayurveda will give away some exciting prizes!

There is a nominal $5 donation to support House of Ayurveda hosting the events, but please don't let a lack of funds to stop you. Everyone is welcome!

Any questions or comments? Carpooling arrangements? Please use the 'Comments' area on the event page.
