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!

    The article I was talking about that probed the question of consciousness in insects is from Discover Magazine. "Consciousness in a Cockroach" is found at this link:

      Karen, is your question, "Did you talk about whether it's ethical to conduct the experiments on animals that are described in the article?" If that's what you're asking, no, I don't recall that we discussed that.

      That's about it....one article on "insect sentience" vs article on "insect testing" seems to be antithetical to one another???

    While I'm a bit late getting back here I want to Thank you all for a great discussion group. Tom I'm sorry I missed chatting w'you as it seems you've got lots of interesting things to share. So glad everyone got a chance to meet Jennifer Greene! She has taught me so much in last few years and continues to be an inspiration! It was great meeting Doug also, and I hope you both will continue to enjoy our WFs MU the last Mon. of the Month.

    I came across the article in an internet search about a year ago when I was looking at the question of which animals experience pain and/or have a consciousness.

    At our table, I referred to this piece by philosophy professor Mylan Engel, Jr., which seems to me to be a pretty airtight case—I have yet to encounter an effective rebuttal! But as I was acknowledging last night, human behavior is often NOT determined by what's logical or rational. (If it were, then all we'd need to do is make copies of Prof. Engel's essay and hand it out. :) Note that his argument is context-dependent; he's addressing readers who, like members of VLI, live in a time and place where survival does not depend on consuming animal foods... http://www.uta.edu/philosophy/faculty/burgess-jackson/Engel,%20The%20Immorality%20of%20Eating%20Meat%20(2000).pdf

    No, thank you, too far to go for a meal. When you have something closer to Southampton, yes!

    Hey you guys who never RSVP......look who is coming! The "inspiration" behind Vegan Long Island and our "well spoken leader", Jennifer Greene! While she lives "way out there" on the S'Eastern shore of LI (and does the Lake Groove WF's MU monthly) she has found the time to join us next week! As most of you know I have referred to her often as my "hero" for all things Vegan, and I know there are a few of you who show w'out "RSVPing" so I'm just giving a "shout out" to JOIN US!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
