Next Meetup

Join us for our annual Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck!
Greetings, all! If you would like to feast on delicious treats with compassionate people in a festive setting, this annual potluck is for YOU! Cost: $3. Children under 16 free. PLEASE REMEMBER TO RSVP FOR POTLUCKS SO THAT WE KNOW HOW MANY TABLES TO SET UP. ALSO, NON VEGAN ITEMS WILL NOT BE PUT OUT. THANK YOU. Please bring a VEGAN dish to share, the recipe or list of ingredients, your serving utensil (please label), place setting, and beverage. Email [masked] or see www.vegetarianrichmond.org by Monday, November 19th for information, ______ Right now is the perfect time to continue a holiday tradition of compassion or start a new one by sponsoring a turkey through Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project. We are offering sponsorships for five turkeys currently living at sanctuary in addition to our brand new In Memoriam sponsorship, in honor of our dear friend Turpentine. These turkeys serve as ambassadors for the 45 million turkeys slaughtered every year for Thanksgiving. Whether you adopt one turkey or the entire flock, you are giving them a voice and demonstrating that these beautiful, intelligent birds are someone, not something. http://shop.farmsanctuary.org/category/Adopt-A-Turkey-Project

Please note that many of our potluck events are sponsored by the Vegetarian Society of Richmond(VSR). VSR was founded in 1995 by Lois Angeletti, years before being vegan was as cool + as common as it is today! Please note that most of the VSR potlucks do require a $3 fee to cover the cost of the venue while also supporting the Society’'s expenses including activities and outreach such as the Richmond Vegetarian Festival, the Health Expo, + the Pet Expo.
