Freegan feast!

  • Oct 18, 2012 · 5:30 PM

A mostly vegan community meal we will make together with love, mostly using food we rescued from the trash on Tuesday, Oct 16. (See previous event-- it all makes much more sense if you come to both!). We share meal planning, cooking, and other food prep skills, tell stories and jokes, meet new people and reconnect with old friends, and generally unplug from the current world order as we build community.

If you are not a skilled cook, it is OK! If you are, hooray! You can plan a dish or two from the ingredients we have on hand, and get help if you want it. All participants should plan help in some way, even if work or other commitments prevent you arriving right on time. And all participants who do not plan on helping with the food rescue the night before need to bring some freegan (dumpstered, wild foraged or garden grown) ingredients.

We rotate the location of the feast, most often in the homes of our volunteers. If you would like to offer your kitchen and living room, for this event or a future one, hooray! Hosting a feast entails coming to the trash tour the night before and bringing home at least some of the food we will be preparing.

As is always the case with our freegan feasts, the RSVP must be certain, and if it turns out you can't come you must cancel by at least 24 hours in advance – please don't say "yes" and then not show up! And arriving after 7pm would not be respectful of those who have already put in time and effort.Thanks for being considerate of all participants.

    a fellow vegan and aspiring fregan friend and I would LOVE to come to this event tomorrow but the meetup page says that the event is closed (even though there are 12 spaces left?)
    If it is possible for us to come please send me the location information either by phone[masked] email [masked] or by posting here.
    We just discovered you guys and got really excited, my friend is visiting (doesn't live in nyc) so hopefully it will be possible for us to come!

      Hi Lauren, we do close RSVPs 1 day before the event, because we had some trouble with people RSVPing last minute. But we do have room, and we'd love for you to come. I'll send you the location to your email... See you later!
