  • Top RAW Food Potluck in Scottsdale!
    Come and experience the grandeur, the spectacle, the wonder of the world's most succulent and tantalizing foods. You'll discover new and creative dishes, consisting of savory and satisfying flavors, from foodstuffs found only in Nature. Get Real. Have Fun. Enjoy Life. And Living Foods! Please bring a vegan raw food dish (veggies/nuts, herbs/spices, salt, olive oil are generally acceptable ingredients for dishes), or a salad (fruits, veggies, nuts, spices), or a fruit/veggie platter for eight (or more) people. Don't know what to bring? There are literally 4.63 gazillion recipes on the Internet. Type in the words: "Raw Food Recipes" with a search and see what happens! Here is an example video of a RAW-Vegan dish you would find at this type of event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Erpa3C2JwVI HOUSE RULES at Natural Grocers: No items with gluten whatsoever are allowed, there's no soliciting or selling of anything at the store (which are the exclusive realm of the venue hosting the event). And to cut down on costs/waste, please bring your own plate, utensils, and drinking cup. Also, if you could list the ingredients of your dish, that would be helpful to people with allergy issues. Finally, we must have cleaned and vacated the potluck room (just inside the front door to the left) by 8:15pm. Please cooperate in that regard. Please be advised that this is a RAW-Vegan potluck. For those persons unfamiliar with "raw," that generally means no foodstuffs that have been heavily processed/heated/cooked. In other words, "raw" typically entails foodstuffs as Nature intended (e.g., fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds, sprouts) which have all their nutrients intact, and not cooked out of existence, nor processed into oblivion. Most manufactured/canned/bottled/packaged foods, such as popcorn, chips, Veganaise, etc. are typically not "raw"; though, cold-pressed olive oil, raw coconut aminos, raw agave, spices, and salt are generally-acceptable exceptions to the non-packaging precept. For those persons not familiar with the term "vegan," that generally means free from animal products and their derivatives. This includes all dairy products, honey, and whey. If, on the off chance that someone new attends this event, and is unfamiliar with the RAW-Vegan parameter of the event, please be in keeping with the longstanding tradition of the leadership and members of the Vegetarian Society of Phoenix to be accepting/understanding (in the moment) of all people, their current level of awareness, and their own individual paths in life. This means that if there is a particular potluck item that is not entirely "raw" and not entirely "vegan," do your part (in a calm and loving way) to help make sure that this item is clearly labeled as such, and let the participants at the event decide for themselves whether or not to indulge in it. Conversely, there is never an occasion at any VEGphoenix-sponsored event for emotional outbursts or hostilities shown toward any of the participants at any event on the part of our members. Please leave all emotional baggage at the entrance of this event, and do your part to not embarrass yourself or the Vegetarian Society of Phoenix (as group) with any childish behavior. Love is the most important ingredient in any type of recipe. Natural Grocers is located on the NW corner of Thunderbird Rd and Scottsdale Rd in Scottsdale.

    Please join us as we celebrate the weekly (each Monday throughout the year at 6pm) "Pay as You Can" Vegan Buffet Feast at Community Cuisine in Phoenix! From fertile organic fields to our mouths, we’ll experience culinary rapture and the sweet nectar of the gods; savoring every bite of one mouth-watering masterpiece and flavor revelation after another; a feast for the eyes, tongue, and body. Rock your taste buds with us at Community Cuisine! Ground Rules: Given the nature of the event as a buffet with a limited number of participants, please arrive as close to the 6pm start time as possible. And because this event is only held once a week, and because food is purchased specifically for a fixed number of people, your RSVP must be rock-solid and firm for this event. Updating your RSVP if your plans change is mandatory for this event or you risk not being invited back to this event. Directions: For newcomers who have not yet been to the venue, you may have a difficultly navigating the streets the first time there - due to the existence of the light rail line tracks. You'll find the Community Cuisine Buffet east of downtown Phoenix on the SW corner of 23rd St and Washington St (south of the light rail tracks on Washington St or north of light rail tracks on Jefferson St, via 23rd St), located in the Toolnet International Building on Washington St. Please note that both Washington St and Jefferson St, surrounding the venue, are both one-way streets, and you can only access the venue with your vehicle from south of the light rail tracks on Washington St or from north of the light rail tracks on Jefferson St. Parking is either on 23rd street or in the gravel lot behind the venue, just north of Jefferson St. Please enter the venue through the front door of the Toolnet International Building on Washington St. Community Cuisine offers a pickup service each week at their venue. Most recipes are low-fat and gluten-free. A weekly menu is posted by midnight each Wednesday evening, with an order deadline of 10am Saturday morning.
