Hello Everyone! I am so excited to announce that The Raw Vegan Potluck in Parma has moved location. We will be meeting in Brecksville. See the map for details. NOW is the time to send in your RSVP and mark your calendar.
Please bring your smile, a hungry appetite, and a raw vegan (organic if possible) dish that has not been heated over about 110 degrees to share with 6-8 people. If you are a creative type then by all means invent something really unique. If you are a newbie or a more simple foods oriented individual then just stop at the market and pick up something raw and fresh that you think will suit. If you are coming as a couple, please bring an extra large, double, or a second entree. If you are coming directly from work and can't bring anything, please still come, as your friendship is of most importance and we usually have plenty of food for everyone.
We have stopped using as much of the disposable tableware as possible. We have washable dishes, glasses and silverware for use at these potlucks but it is appreciated if you can bring your own setting if possible. Please also bring a serving utensil to serve up your entree.
The social time will start at 6:30 pm and we will begin eating at 7:00 pm. The Compass South Professional Building is easy to find from I-77. Get off at the Wallings Road exit, and head east to get to Brecksville Road (Route 21). Next turn right (South) on Brecksville Road until you get to the next traffic light. The office building is on the right side and there is plenty of free parking.
You can park on the lower level and come up the stairs to our office on the second floor. Our office is also handicap accessible if you continue past the lower level parking, turn left up the driveway and park in the upper level parking lot or park next door in the restaurant's parking lot to enter the second floor entrance. View the map for specific details.
Since this month is right before Thanksgiving, I thought it might be fun to bring a dish with the seasonal flavors. It is not necessary but just a thought. We can also have a discussion on "How to Survive the Holidays". Many of our family members and friends do not understand why we choose this healthier way of eating. I have some great tips to share with all of you when invited to these holiday gatherings and parties. I'm sure you also have some tips. Please come and share with us.

A special message from Sandie is: "Because this is an all plant based raw vegan (mostly organic) gathering I would ask everyone to respect the request to keep the potluck just that. No animal flesh or animal by-products, please. And no cooked vegan or processed vegan food, please. We are all about being vegan and raw. Fresh, ripe, vegan, raw and organic (if possible). Also, please refrain from using colognes and perfumes being considerate of those with sensitivities and allergies." Thank you for understanding.
