Monthly Raw Food Pot Luck Dinner

 Let's start out the new year in a Do It mode! Do Raw Living Foods this year, for health, life and enjoyment! Come and enjoy an evening in our amazing meeting place "Sandy Bonus Fine Arts Studio". for a Second Sunday Raw Food Pot Luck Dinner! It just keeps getting better and better and you are all the ones making it happen! Lets do it again and again. This is now the 9th year of the re-occurring event. Let's have some fun!

As always we will enter and start setting up at 5pm and should start eating around 5:30pm. Please see the thread on the message board saying recipes, recipes, and more recipes for some raw recipe choices and sites to guide you. Choose and bring a raw, vegan (by this I mean a dish consisting of fresh ..... hopefully organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouted grains and herbs only) This dish should feed at least 10 people with a donation of $3.00, or come and eat for a donation of $10.00. This cost helps me recover some of the outside costs and pay for this beautiful space. I try always to bring several dishes that will give all of you a taste. If you are new to Raw Foods and confused about what to bring please know that those donations in lieu of the dish do help.

I love this meetup place and extending an invitation to all of you to bring family, friends, neighbors and any you know interested in a Raw Food Lifestyle. See You There!

  • Samantha

    Hello! Just checking in... I haven't decided what I'll be making yet, but are dessert-type recipes also an acceptable option, or should it be more of a "meal" main/side?

    1 · January 1, 2014

    • Chef O.

      Hey Samantha, bring what you enjoy fixing. We will love whatever you put loving energy into! Come, relax, and get to know like minded folks!
