Holiday Potluck with Humane Society

We're teaming up with the Vancouver Humane Society to bring you a holiday potluck opportunity.

Fear not! We will follow all fire safety regulations regarding proper egress. We'll be relaxed and comfortable, with plenty of room to move around and socialize! To ensure this, only those registered here will get in. Therefore, your name must be on the list if we have 120 registered in order to be safe.

 

We ask that you come with good cheer and a dish to share that can allow 8 people to take a big serving spoon sized scoop. Please ensure your dish has no animal products so that everyone from omnivore to vegan can partake. Please do not bring any dishes with eggs or cheese or fish or gelatin. If that sounds challenging to you, Whole Foods or Choices have many ready made options to choose from. Please bring an ingredient list so people can see what is in your food.

 

There will be prizes for the best appetizer, best entree, best dessert and best raw dish.

 

We require many volunteers to make this event go off in a well organized smooth manner. Please indicate in your RSVP if you would like to volunteer and if so, for which area:

 

1. Entrance table

2. Ushering and mingling and welcoming

3. Food tables

4. Set up

5. Decorating

6. Clean up

    Thanks for organizing this event. Unaware of the culture of the group, and wasn't aware we were to bring our own plates, napkins, cups, drinks etc. Was eye opening to see all the different meatless dishes.

      Sorry that some of you got caught without plates. I did send an email to all attendees about plates and cutlery. I hope you had a good time anyway and found enough gluten free foods to enjoy, Kristi.

    Hi Nancy and organizers. Thanks for the great time at the Christmas potluck. As usual, there was a cornucopia of different foods, and I met many friendly, interesting, and enthusiastic people. To use a cooking pun, "well done!" ;-)

    Lots of great fun but less people than expected. Great to help the Humane Society too. Excellent choice of vegan delights!

    I am looking forward to attending this. My interest in this group is health related...BUT usually I cannot attend because your events involve pre-set meals which do not work because I am also gluten free.

    • Kristi

      I may be willing to do that another time, right now I am having mobility issues, which vary greatly from day to day. If I feel up to it, I will pitch in, but don't want to make commitments. Health...the very reason I am on this strict diet.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
