What we're about

This group is open to anyone who is interested in or curious about vegan food and the vegan lifestyle. We plan to host a wide range of fun vegan events both indoors and outdoors. Think potlucks, movies, dinners, dineouts, hiking, camping, baking, recipe exchanges, discussions, sporting events, book clubs, etc. We started this group because we wanted to amp up the frequency and fun factor of vegan get-togethers in the South Bay and the Peninsula.

SV Social Vegans: online meetup + optional food/drink challenge

Online event

Hi everyone,

Let's meet up...online! You do NOT need to cook/make something to join the meetup - it's totally optional!

We'll use Jitsi for our video hangout because it's quick and easy - no signup/account required.

• Computer (preferred) - Video chat with a computer is a much better experience than the mobile app. Go to https://meet.jit.si/SVSV from Chrome or Firefox browser, and allow access to your microphone and camera. Safari on Mac doesn't seem to work well.

• Smartphone (if computer not available) - If you cannot join via computer, then download the "Jitsi Meet" Android or iOS app and enter room name "SVSV" and join.
--> Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.jitsi.meet
--> iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/jitsi-meet/id1165103905

This is intended to be a CASUAL and INFORMAL hangout that gives us a chance to chat and (re)connect. Here's what you can expect at this online meetup:

1) Intros (name, dietary preference, location, question of the week)

2) Optional [food/drink] challenge--sweet or savory, inspired by whatever culture you fancy! (you do NOT need to make something to join the meetup)
--show us your skills with making [food/drink]! Make something on or before Saturday, and upload a photo on this meetup event page. Please share or link to the recipe so we can learn too!
--even if you can't join us for the meetup, you can still show off your cooking skills by adding your photos to this meetup.

3) If time permits, we will play a short, easy, and fun game together.

Looking forward to seeing you all...from a safe distance! :-)
