Dunedin/Ōtepoti Vegan Society (DOVeS) Monthly Vegan Potluck

The aim of these gatherings is to enjoy delicious vegan food with like-minded people in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is welcome at our potlucks; vegans and non-vegans alike. Children are most welcome too. So feel free to invite your friends and family. !!! Note: Please bring a gold coin to help cover the cost of the venue, plus our other expenses !!! Please bring a vegan dish to share. If you’re unsure what to bring, there are many good websites with easy vegan recipes. But vegan food doesn't have to be fancy: it can be as simple as tossing together a fresh fruit salad, or bringing a bowl of hummus, with chips or a platter of crunchy vegetables for dipping. But even if you really, truly can't bring a dish, please come along anyway. Your company is what’s important! See you there! :) . . . Note 1: Veganism is a lifestyle choice in which, as much as is practicable and realistic, we avoid ALL forms of animal exploitation. Vegans avoid all animal-derived foods, and foods which contain these things as ingredients: even in small quantities. This includes foods derived from organic, free range, or wild animals. To find out more about veganism and what foods are and aren't vegan, check out the 'About Veganism' page on our website: http://dovesnz.weebly.com/veganism.html Note 2: If you have any allergies or special dietary requirements, (other than being vegan), please let one of the DŌVeS organisers know. DŌVeS is always more than happy to help people identify which dishes are suited to your needs, and which ones aren't. Note 3: To find out when the next potluck is happening, (and more!), join the DŌVeS email list here: http://dovesnz.weebly.com/contact.html * See the DŌVeS website for a map of how to find The Apartment: http://dovesnz.weebly.com/monthly-potlucks.html (Note: Vehicles must not be parked in the building or in the carpark immediately outside the building.
