Each month we host a potluck, followed by an educational presentation or cooking demonstration. Our potlucks explore delicious food and enable you to meet others within the community. Please bring your favorite vegan dish to serve 8 or more, a copy of the ingredients or recipe, your own eating plates & utensils and come enjoy great food, vegan cooking tips, and fellowship.
This is a Special Event!!! We have Will Tuttle making the following presentation:
Healing Our World: A Deeper Look at Food
What are the cultural messages that we consume with our daily meals, and what kind of transformation can we help create when we’re more conscious about our food choices? Join Dr. Tuttle in exploring the hidden consequences of animal agriculture. This presentation illuminates the cultural and health impacts of our food system as the primary organizing and compelling force in our world, and provides some essential keys to thriving in our lives, and being more effective advocates for peace, justice, and healing.
