This month, please support Team Vegan Long Island by pre-ordering Neil's competition-worthy chili! He will bring your order to the Jericho Whole Foods meetup.
$10 a quart. Great cause, great chili! Visit this page to place your order: http://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/events/138574152/
Be sure to pick up your quart(s) at the meetup. And if you don't want any chili, no prob—but please pitch in some bucks if you can. Thanks!
The Whole Foods store in Jericho has an eating area with tables that seat six (6), and the food bar is vegan-friendly (vegan items are clearly labeled, ingredients are listed). You pay by the weight of your food. My total usually comes to $10-11.
As with all Vegan Long Island (VLI) meetups, please bring only vegan fare to the table. (Our policy is that "at VLI meetups, the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." In other words, we expect everyone to enjoy a vegan meal together. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan.")
We'll be occupying a few booths somewhere in the eating area at the front of the store, at least until 7:30. (The store closes at 10.) Be aware that as it gets later in the evening, the food bar may run out of more popular items.
NOTE: Whole Foods offers durable bowls, but not durable utensils. So I encourage you to bring your own utensils to avoid needing to take their plastic ones. I bring my own water bottle, too.
Hope to see you there!
Please update your RSVP status by 12 pm Monday, because seating is limited, and I'll be bringing nametags for everyone who says they're coming. If you need to reach me, call or text[masked]
