EAST BAY RAW: Raw & Vegan Food & Health Message Board › The Oakland Raw Food Meetup Group Discussion Forum › RAW on a Budget- updated content and menu
I wanted to send you an updated message from Brandi about her talk and the delicious food that will be available.
I also need volunteers to help set up and clean up- Please e-mail me (you can reply to this message)
if you're interested in volunteering and coming for free.
Brandi will share some vital strategies for learning how to live a budget-conscious raw foods diet!
"Eating a budget-friendly raw foods diet is more than just about finding low-cost produce and I will show you why! Plus, I will show you how to feel inspired and empowered by your budget, instead of feeling limited or deprived. The strategies will prepare you to begin your budget-conscious raw foods journey!
You can't miss this talk! This is your opportunity to finally get some real answers on how to enjoy a raw foods diet without robbing a bank!
I will also include a 15-20 period where people can basically pick my brain. This way I can cover the most vital strategies for starting the raw foods on a budget journey and then answer specific questions about storage, where to buy food, etc. that people may have.

Further information to get to the venue:
Here are further instructions about finding the space. 2141 Broadway has an entrance with blue mosaic tiles around it. Go directly up the stairs and turn left into the room. (There is an elevator available from a different entrance on 22nd St. if anybody needs assistance). The location is just a block from BART....exit BART at 19th Street Station. That puts you right near the Paramount Theater and walk a block and a half up from there.
ONE MORE THING- It is advisable for all meetup events to go back to the site at least the day of the event to check to see if any changes have been made. This happens from time to time. I e-mail everyone but in case you miss something, I suggest you take a last look. (very rarely will any changes be made that last day)
