What we're about

The Chico Vegan Meetup is a friendly, low-key meetup! No agendas, no pressure... our dine-in meetups are a pleasant social setting for vegans, vegetarians and veg-curious to meet, network, or just get out with like-minded folks who care about animals, the environment, and about themselves. In 2012 animal activist events will be added so we can hopefully make a difference for the animals in our community, so look for letter-writing and leafleting opportunities coming up.

The CVM Facebook profile is much more active in terms of local news items: https://www.facebook.com/groups/126921644016597/

January 2019 - Chico Vegan Potluck

Chico Public Library

Coming up! Mark your ✏️📆⏱ Saturday, January 26,[masked]pm—7:30pm Chico Public Library 1108 Sherman Avenue, Chico CA 95928 You don't have to be vegan to attend, but the food does! Bring a 100% plant-based dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. If you don't cook, that's okay -- bring something from the store (http://www.traderjoes.com/dietary-lists/vegan)! Your dish should serve 6-8 people. The goal of our monthly potluck: Sharing delicious food and recipes with those who care about their health, the planet, and, most of all, the animals. Our (optional) theme this month is New Year, New Recipe. Try a brand-new recipe that you haven't tried before but want to share. Now's the time to check out all those delicious blogs that you've bookmarked - recipes from Vegan Richa, Minimalist Baker, Olives for Dinner: Recipes for the Ethical Vegan, Elizavegan, and Straight Up Food, just to name a few. SHARING IS CARING - please share with or tag your friends, or post in your workplace or coffee shop. Thank you!! As always, there will be a table for the Plant Based Chico group for foods that are strictly whole-food, plant-based, with no added sugar, salt or oil. Everyone is free to intermingle and select from each table and no food shaming, please. FYI: Our average potluck attendance is about 25-30 wonderful human beings, because people learn about these events from Meetup as well as the Chico Vegan Meetup Facebook group, the Chico Vegan Instagram and Twitter accounts, chicovegan.com, and plain old word-of-mouth. If you're not into cooking but just want to socialize, it's fine to bring something yummy from the store. Please bring a printout of your recipe or a list of the ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies) with your name on it. Please do not bring soup - we have no bowls and are concerned about spills. Please bring your own beverages. Please bring your own plates, cups, silverware, and serving utensils. We have spares available if you forget! Non-veg friends welcome! Children welcome! Sorry, no dogs. No alcohol. For more information or cruelty-free recipes, please visit chicovegan.com or shoot an email to Jeannie at [masked]. ALSO - SAVE THE DATE - the next Chico Vegan Potluck is on Saturday February 23, 2019. The Chico Vegan Potluck is held on the fourth Saturday of every month except November.
