JaxRaw - NorthEast Florida's Raw & Living Foods Meetup Message Board › What to Expect at a JaxRaw Meetup - Info for New Members
|A former member||
Hello to all of the newer members!
Are you wondering what to expect at a JaxRaw Meetup?
It is a group of health-minded individuals who enjoy the Raw & Living Foods lifestyle, no matter how much they know, or how long they have been enjoying this way of life. The group meets at least once a month (sometimes more) just to socialize & enjoy the company of like-minded people, share knowledge & sources for new information, recipes & techniques and whatever else comes up.
There is no membership fee to join this Meetup Group. No one asks for donations, or pushes anything on you. You come to the Meetup place, order what you want, pay for your own tab, leave your own gratuity, and leave when you're ready. Sometimes there are classes in which there is usually a fee which goes to the chef for the cost of ingredients. If it's a potluck, just bring a raw dish and enjoy yourself!
There is no agenda, and no seating arrangement. We just nourish our minds, nourish our bodies, nourish our spirits through each other's positive energies. No one will make you stand up and state your name and why you're here. (But you can if you want to!)
We usually meet at The Present Moment Cafe in St. Augustine, the region's premier Raw Vegan Restaurant. Usually we meet at a time when they are closed to the public so they're open just for us. We try to be mindful and grateful for their hard work and hospitality and not keep them too late so the Meetup usually winds down after a couple of hours. Occasionally we'll have a have a Meetup Potluck too.
Take a peek at the PHOTOS page of past events. Fun!
PLEASE RSVP-------Guests are always welcome. Please add your guests when you RSVP if you'll be bringing anyone. The more the merrier! Since we have the pleasure of the whole restaurant, a packed house of JaxRaw members would be a very welcome sight indeed!
If you have any questions about the JaxRaw Meetup, please feel free to contact any organizer, or just post a comment here.
Hope to see you at our next JaxRaw Meetup!

Thanks for posting this information Melissa. Our little group is getting bigger and bigger all the time! So far we have 41 members coming for tonight. It will just be our group there so it will be much easier to talk with everyone.

What a great introduction, Melissa. Well said.
I would definitely love for as many members as possible to come and experience the joy in great raw food and beautiful minds that are always present.
New people equals new ideas and new information which then equals NEW GROWTH!!
Join us, even if it is just for an hour and you only want dessert (it's better than you could ever imagine).
