Who's Invited? Everyone! You do not have to be a member of the host organization to join in on the fun. This is a GREAT way to introduce your veg-curious friends to the delights of homemade veggie cuisine.
How it works: Bring a covered veggie dish that follows the "theme" (vegan, vegetarian, raw, local depending on host organization) of the evening.
When: Monday nights 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Cost: suggested $3 donation for the host organization OR $10 if not bringing a dish. Donations may vary by host. Announcing a special deal for the VegCF potluck: if you RSVP "Yes" and bring a dish, you won't be asked for a donation AND you will be given a drink coupon for $2.50 (equal to the price of Tea of the Day).
Where: Dandelion Communitea Cafe, use of entire cafe inside & out (cafe will close its kitchen, but still offer beverages for sale).
Why: Promote Community, Peaceful Eating & a Local Cause while offering a low-cost way for folks to enjoy nutritious & delicious meals in this challenging economy.
