Tucson Conscious Foodies Message Board › NEW: $2 Contribution at Potlucks -- WHY???
HELP US KEEP A GOOD THING GOING IN TUCSON :)
As of February 2011, we now require a $2 contribution at potlucks-- pay upon arrival or prepay via paypal.
The money collected is necessary to keep our HIGH VIBE, THRIVING group successful! It is divided between the following expenses: $19 each month to Meetup for their monthly fees, name tags, and all disposable products for those that forget to bring what we've asked (yes, it does happen) - plates, napkins, utensils, etc.
The money also covers any expenses our generous hosts might incur or for park rentals.
If you've been to one of our events, you know they are TOP NOTCH, often with learning opportunities such as speakers and food demos. We also often have a raffle of top quality "give away" goodies. These events take A LOT of work on site -- and BEHIND the scenes. Behind the scenes requires a huge time investment from our organizers. Your contribution and support as an active member helps insure we keep our momentum going strong.
As the organizers of the group, we often provide extra food in the spirit of abundance, prepared by a professional raw food chef, for your culinary enjoyment.
We are OVERJOYED when volunteers divide the workload of these events. Here's 2 major ways to help: Showing up 30 minutes early to help set up or stay 30 minutes after for cleanup. This keeps it a positive experience for our hosts and they are often eager to do it again (YES!!).
ALSO: We gladly take donations of plates, utensils, and name tags -- this saves us a trip to the store.
Not only does this keep our group going strong but LOVE offerings = ahhh*mazing KARMA. Help us keep a good thing going here in Tucson. xoxo
