Dinner at Whole Foods Market (Jericho)

-posted by Jennifer G. for Karen B.-

It's time again for our Nassau County, Whole Foods Market, monthly meet up.

The Whole Foods store in Jericho has an eating area with tables that seat six (6), and the food bar is vegan-friendly (vegan items are clearly labeled, ingredients are listed).  You pay by the weight of your food. A typical total is $10-11.

As with all Vegan Long Island (VLI) meetups, please bring only vegan fare to the table. (Our policy is that "at VLI meetups, the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." In other words, we expect everyone to enjoy a vegan meal together. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan.")

We'll be occupying a few booths somewhere in the eating area at the front of the store, at least until 7:30. (The store closes at 10.) Be aware that as it gets later in the evening, the food bar may run out of more popular items.

NOTE: Whole Foods offers durable bowls, but not durable utensils. So we encourage you to bring your own utensils to avoid needing to take their plastic ones. You might want to bring your own water bottle, too.

Hope to see you there!

    Can we possibly request Wholefoods to offer more hot/cold vegan dishes? My daughter and I would love to see them offer more because there aren't many vegan restaurants on Long Island and we eat there often.

    Special thanks to Karen for taking the time and trouble to organize this relaxing evening for all of us to enjoy! FYI: The Vegan pizza I ordered for the first time was absolutely delicious and ate the entire huge portion all by myself!
    I thoroughly enjoyed our thoughtful and thought provoking table conversations. Look forward to the next one!!!!

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.
