Volunteers & Bakers needed for Earth Day Festival Booth

I'm excited to announce the Charleston Veggies & Vegans will have a booth at the Charleston County Earth Day Festival this year.  This is an awesome opportunity to educate our community on how their food choices impact the environment, and the animals.  We will be giving out vegan food samples, literature and will be hosting a VegFund Pay-Per-View.  


We will need volunteers to make vegan goodies and to hang out at the booth throughout the day.

The event lasts from 9:00-4:00.  Setup begins at 8:00am.  Please let me know what time range you will be available to volunteer.

IF YOU PLAN TO MAKE FOOD, PURCHASE INGREDIENTS SEPARATELY FROM OTHER SHOPPING SO YOU CAN BE REIMBURSED.   Save your receipts. 

I'm really excited about this event.  

Thank you all for your help!

OUR BOOTH IS IN TENT Q

    I would love to help and get involved in the Earth Day Festival! However, I can only come 1-4pm and I could hand out samples of food and information.

    I just sent out a message with info on setup help, drop off of food/materials, booth location, etc. IT INCLUDES A MAP OF WHERE WE ARE LOCATED. Please let me know if you didn't receive it. IF YOU ARE BRINGING FOOD, please let me know what you are bringing. If it needs to be divided into sample cups, I will have biodegradable ones on hand. Thank you!!

    The Trader Joe's is too far for me to get those strips.
    Azita, I hope you are coming! We should try to talk after 4pm!

    I NEED A VOLUNTEER who maybe doesn't feel like cooking, to pick up some of the "chicken-less" strips from Trader Joes. Said volunteer would also need to heat them up and cut them into samples on Saturday morning. I have some reserved at Trader Joes. You will be reimbursed.

      I don't mind doing that...
      Live pretty close. What time?

      1 · April 18, 2014

    • Stacy

      Great! Thank you!! I reserved about 5 packages from a guy named Willy. You would have to pick them up in advance and heat them in the oven the night before or that morning. Can you get them to the event before 11am? (And save a package so we can recommend it to ppl?)

    I'll be there by 10am and stay till the end.
    Will bring laptop, but my headsets broke! NO headsets, so I will need a pair, not sure if my tight budget allows that now! Also will bring some trail mix or pita chips, something like that.

    STARTING MY SPREADSHEET, PLEASE HELP! :) Please reply to this with what food item you are bringing AND/OR which volunteer shift you are available for. I will be there from 8am to 4pm. Thanks!!

    Afternoon time till the end of the event works best for me. I can stay after to help with clean-up and breakdown as well :)

    • Emily

      I don't mind coming morning time if that works better for you guys so you don't have to make the trip to WF to get the cookies the night before. I'd just pick them up at 8am and come over then :)

    • Stacy

      Thanks Emily. That's nice of you. It's totally up to you. Just keep me posted!

      1 · April 14, 2014

  • Stacy

    Thanks everyone for signing up! I'm going to start compiling a list of volunteers/food samples next week, so please start thinking about what vegan food samples you would like to bring and what voluteer shifts you would like. FOOD/INGREDIENT COSTS WILL BE REIMBURSED (up to a certain amount) SO SAVE RECEIPTS. They have to be on a separate receipt, not mixed in with all your groceries. :)

    I'll be there as early as I can. I can bring my laptop for the pay to view part and flyers too. I'll stay all day too! Hope we have a pretty day! Looking forward to it!

    Hi!! I can try to be there all day. Not sure I can donate any food though, only snacks for me. Being unemployed right now, is especially bad! Debt does SUCK, like that commercial!
