xpost: Hang out at the Whole Foods Market (Lake Grove)
-posted by Jennifer G. for Wendy D. - Wendy writes, "Gather with us at the Whole Foods in Lake Grove on the 3rd Monday of each month. Shopping and schmoozing with your friends. We don't have an official organizer so the 'rules' are that the first person there pushes some tables together and is ready to greet the next person that shows up. In this case RSVP's are very appreciated so that we have some clue about setting up the tables. We have had 20 people and we have had 5."

What we're about

Public Group

Vegan Long Island...where vegans feel at home, and not-yet-vegans are warmly welcomed. Providing a soft landing for new vegans since 2008!

What we do: offer support & build community. We host potlucks, restaurant outings, online forums, outreach events, and other volunteer opportunities.

At VLI meetups, the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness.

Here you go: A Life Connected (http://www.nonviolenceunited.org/veganvideo.html). Another excellent video: Making the Connection (http://vimeo.com/15849273).)
