Morris will be hosting our group at his home in downtown Madison for this raw potluck on Monday, July 19. There is plenty of free street parking in his East Dayton Street neighborhood. Morris’ exact address, driving directions, and contact information will be posted a few days prior to the potluck.
I will be out to town for this potluck, so if you should have any questions please direct them to Sonya. You can contact her via the “contact us” link on our website or by clicking here: http://www.meetup.com...
Our usual potluck guidelines will apply:
First off, we very much want to welcome our new members and those curious about the raw and living foods lifestyle. We encourage you to bring something very simple - some fresh, organic seasonal fruit, some cut up organic veggies, or some raw trail mix you can put together, for example. (If you need more ideas, contact Sonya or David by using the “contact us” link on the left side of web page.) More information for newcomers to our group can be found here: http://www.meetup.com...
For each person attending bring one dish with at least eight servings to share, along with the appropriate serving utensils. One can reasonably expect this to cost somewhere around $15.00.
Please bring all of your own silverware, dishes, and cups that you will be using.
Please use organic ingredients whenever possible to prepare your dish, for increased nutrition, elimination of pesticides and genetically modified foods, and most importantly for your body and for the planet!
If dehydrating or warming your food, please do so at or below 105 degrees to ensure that the enzymes of the food remain intact and active.
Bring a copy of your recipe to place by your dish, so that others can copy it if they like what they tasted, and also so they can be able to make informed choices, should they not want to eat certain ingredients due to sensitivities or other personal reasons (such as nuts or Bragg's Liquid, for example). We will then post a message on the Madison Raw Food Meetup website where everyone can respond to and add their recipes for each particular potluck to share them with others.
At the end of previous potlucks we often exchange our leftovers. Bring some extra containers if you want to join in on the fun.
Voluntary donations towards the costs of using our Meetup web presence ($144 annually) are greatly appreciated. It was suggested by our members that we should consider donating a dollar or two every potluck, which would quickly help us meet our costs.
Thanks for hosting us, Morris!
