This 4-week program is called "Kickstart Your Health." Cost for the whole series if just $95 (or $20 per class). Here is the link to buy tickets: I took one of the Food for Life programs some years back and loved it. The program I took combined video instruction with in-person instruction, plus a cooking demonstration (and eating). And class tuition included a great cookbook. Denise has started up her own Meetup group, where you'll find all the details of this program: ******* Here is the information about the class, from Denise's Meetup group: Attendees enjoy delicious, nutritious buffet style light afternoon fare including a variety of finger sandwiches, plant based cheese board, fruit, healthy dessert and beverage, all while learning about the benefits of following a plant based diet from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's Food For Life Program! A cooking demonstration will include three dishes from the Food For Life Program! Participants do not leave hungry and take away a wealth of valuable information! This is a 4-class series. Each class is intended to build upon the previous class so attendance to each is best! To register: • What to bring Bring yourself, an appetite, and a writing instrument. • Important to know Tickets can be purchased here: If class fee is a hardship please contact instructor Denise via her Meetup group.

What we're about

Public Group

A group for vegetarians and vegans (and the veg-curious) to meet, share food ideas, socialize & eat some great veg food! We meet at different veg-friendly restaurants & have a bimonthly vegan potluck (on the 3rd Saturday). We have various other events, so keep your eyes on the calendar! We also have a message board where we share information and answer each others questions!

You do not have to be vegetarian or vegan to attend, but please follow the diet listed for the event. All events are vegetarian unless listed as vegan. Vegetarians eat no flesh foods, including stock, fish, gelatin and other seafood, while vegans also exclude dairy, eggs and honey.

Dues can be paid at a meetup event or email me (click the link to the left) for contact info. This helps me pay the service fee to Meetup. Dues are $1 for a month you attend an event or $3 for the whole year.

I look forward to meeting you!
