Koffee Klatch: pre-launch of "The Veganize Guys"

Special program: "The Veganize Guys (Guise?)" are coming!

That's US! Each month an SVS member (or two) will demo and provide samples of easy "veganized" recipes/techniques. Let's share our favorite plant-based recipes and teach each other how to make them.

This month:

  • a super-easy vegan, gluten-free dry "cheez" mix you can throw together in a flash at home and store in your pantry. Just add non-dairy milk (or water), heat, stir, and pour over steamed greens, pasta, potatoes, tempeh—the possibilities are endless.
  • We'll also have samples of a couple of vegan, oil-free, tasty bean-based spreads/sauces you can blend in minutes. Recipes will be provided.

We hope you can join us at this Veganize Guys pre-launch. Yes, it's last-minute notice (apologies!), but so is the recovery (from a cold) of this month's veganizer.

  • Want to be part of the Veganize Guys team?
  • Have favorite dishes you want to veganize? Add them to the list, whether you want to demo them yourself or learn from others.

Get in touch at [masked] or drop a note here at Meetup.


SVS Koffee Klatch: Getting connected and promoting community in a friendly, informal atmosphere—every second Sunday morning. Whether you are an SVS member or representing another organization, or yourself, please join us. Everyone is invited.

We want to give folks a place to:

  • Stop by for a few minutes or linger for a while;
  • Mingle with old friends and new supporters over coffee, tea, and vegan pastries;
  • Talk about what they're up to (bring flyers, handbills, petitions, opinions, bright ideas).

We'd also like to hear your ideas on future SVS activities, so tell us:

  • What you'd like to see SVS doing in the coming year,
  • Of other groups we can work with on common goals.

—you get the drift. Please bring kuestions, komments, and kriticisms, along with your kaffeine kravings.

You bring: vegan pastries or brunch items (purchased or home-baked);

We supply: koffee (de-kaf included) and a selection of teas;

Optional, but encouraged: bring a bag or box of fresh produce from a farmer's market, your local grocery store, or your garden. After schmoozing and finding out what's up in our community, a volunteer will deliver what we've collected to Food Not Bombs—a group that has been feeding vegan food to the homeless at César Chávez Plaza every Sunday for over 20 years.

See you at the Grange Hall!

    Another great Klatch! Good Veganize Guys segment. We can always count on interesting people and good conversation at the SVS Klatch. The Grange Hall meeting room is such a pleasant place to hang out and talk. Thanks again Mary and Glenn.

    It turned out great! Looks like The Veganize Guys will be a regular feature of our Koffee Klatches. Look for an announcement later this week about next month's presentation.
