4th Anniversary Celebration - Family Style Community Vegan Potluck @ UEC

As many of you might know, Jessie started the tradition of monthly community potlucks back in 2015 at UEC. That tradition has continued since then because of you and your family/friends. It is one of our highly attended event and it has positively impacted many lives including me through education, networking, friendship and great food. Let's celebrate our 4th potluck anniversary together on Feb 5th! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please join us at the Riverside Urban Ecology Center for our Monthly Vegan Community Potluck. You do not have to be vegan to attend, but the food does! We ask that your offering does not include any type of meat or meat stock (including fish), dairy, eggs, or honey. As for how much food to prepare: bring enough for 4 times the amount of people in your party (for instance, if you're coming solo, bring enough to feed 4 people). Set up and networking from 6.30 - 7 pm, Dinner from 7 - 8 pm and clean up from 8 - 8.30 pm We ask that you label your ingredients, or bring the recipe to display. There are many reasons to eat vegan: health, food allergies, ethical concerns, environmental impact, spiritual beliefs, etc. If you have any questions about vegan cuisine or resources, please feel free to message one of the meetup organizers. Please be aware that these potlucks are a labor of love, and we ask that each attendee is respectful to each other and the space graciously being provided to us. We will need to wash dishes, and put tables and chairs away before we leave for the night. We also ask that if you bring children, they are supervised at all times. Thank you so much. NOTE : This is a free event. However, donations to the UEC are always appreciated.
