3nd Annual Vegan Potluck Picnic Barbecue!

Let's celebrate Independence Day with a new tradition of independence from cruelty with a vegan BBQ! Everyone's welcome, so bring friends and family!

We'll supply the tofu dogs, veggie burgers, buns, and all the fixins.

Please bring a picnic-style vegan dish to share and your own plate, cup and silverware so we don't waste trees.

Remember, this event takes the place of the July Penngrove Potluck and the July Vegan Life Support Dinner.

La Plaza Park has signs posted that they do not allow dogs in the park but bring blankets, frisbees, bubbles, etc.

If you are willing to take a BBQ shift, leave a comment or contact Hope at [masked]. We need six awesome volunteers (two per shift).

BBQ Shifts:

12:30 - 1
1:30 - 2
2:30 - 3

    Would it be possible to have the kale, tofu and rice noodles recipe? That was my favorite dish.
    Thanks.

    Nice to meet you all. Great dishes, such creativity and talent! Here's a recipe from Wendy Polisi, the Quinoa blog person I mentioned to a couple of folks there: http://www.cookingquinoa.net/toasted-granola-bars-with-quinoa-chia-and-flax-seeds

    So sorry to have missed this! Thought we'd be able to make it, but didn't end up being able to. Sounds like it was a great time. Hopefully we'll be able to make another time soon.

    I am a chef instructor and caterer and became vegan April 2013 to embrace a healthier lifestyle and lose weight. I wish I could say this has been a breeze. . .but I'm still on the path. Looking forward to a fun day!

    July 6, 2013

  • Hope B.

    Just fyi- I will be bringing several blankets to lay out and chairs. So if you don't have that don't worry about it! It's supposed to be a nice day, not too hot. Can't wait to see everybody!

    I look forward to meeting-up with other vegans...provided that Google maps or my GPS actually can get me there from Contra Costa County!

      Phil - it's very easy - take 101 to the West Sierra exit and go east - you will see the park on your left side when you get to the first signal light.

  • wendy

    You should probably think about bringing a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on!

    Can't Wait!

    Love seeing new vegans coming.....

    June 30, 2013

  • wendy

    I have 5 people from my hiking group who say they are coming but never know for sure if they will show up

    Also, I will bring a couple of tables from work again like I did last year, since my office is practically across the street

    Wow...how timely. I just committed to being vegan after reading Will Tuttle's book, the World Peace Diet. I need support and I know where to find it. Thank you for being there.

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.
