What we're about
Each Suppers meeting has its own purpose and personality. There are only three non-negotiable principles common to all meetings:
1. that we all actively practice non-judgment
2. that we all prepare meals from single, whole, fresh foods with very limited processed food
3. that we all avoid commercial messages and the promotion of any particular diet, product or service
Beyond that, facilitators create meetings based on their own particular passions, be it teaching people to prepare raw vegan meals, to managing or reversing diabetes through lifestyle change, to teaching people how to transition the family taste buds from junk to healthy food. We do this by creating safe and friendly settings where people with food-related health challenges can develop and manage their own personal transition to a healthier lifestyle. We focus on preparing healthy mood-stabilizing meals from whole foods, including easy one-pot meals like soups, stews, chili, salads, and slaws. Forge new friendships and get support based on healthy living. The program is free to users except for the shared cost of the meal, about $15/meeting.

Please note that active participation in Suppers Meetups is required to be a continuing member. The goals of the program cannot be achieved if you cannot attend in person. Cooking, eating, and meeting together is the underlying foundation of Suppers. So if you are unable to attend 3 meetings in a 12 month period, you will be removed from the Meetup. You are free to rejoin when your schedule permits your presence at meetings.
