Taste and Explore the Benefits of Whole plant-based foods at Vegan Potluck
Rocking it with Plant Dense Foods The key to establish a healthy eating plan is to learn from others and practice in a safe environment until you instinctively prefer healthy foods. The social time will start at 2:30 pm and we will begin eating at 3:00 pm. The featured speaker will begin the discussion around 3:30. You have the option to attend both the potluck and discussion or select one or the other. Also, feel free to just stop in to socialize for a bit or tour the facilities at any time during the event. Please bring your smile, a hungry appetite, and a whole food plant-based vegan (organic if possible) dish to share with 6-8 people. If you are a creative type then by all means invent something really unique. If you are a newbie or a more simple foods oriented individual then just stop at the market and pick up something unprocessed and fresh that you think will suit. If you are coming as a couple, please bring an extra-large, double, or a second entree. If you are coming directly from work and can't bring anything, please still come, as your friendship is of most importance and we usually have plenty of food for everyone. It is appreciated that you bring your own setting if possible along with a serving utensil to serve with your entree. If you forget or don't have everything, there will be extra settings and utensils. The Office Atrium is conveniently located on Route 82 near I-77 between Broadview and Brecksville Roads. We are meeting in the 1st floor lobby. There is plenty of free parking around the building with handicap parking close to the entrance doors. The western side of the building has the closest entrance to the lobby. This Whole Food Plant-Based Potluck Is Posted On All of these Websites: The Vegans Meetup Group Website (http://www.meetup.com/vegetarian-367/) The Vegan Baking and Cooking Meetup Group Website (http://www.meetup.com/VeganBakingandCooking/) A special message from Sandie is: "Because this is an all whole food plant-based vegan (mostly organic) gathering I would ask everyone to respect the request to keep the potluck just that. No animal flesh or animal by-products, please. Fresh, ripe, vegan, organic (raw if possible). Also, please refrain from using colognes and perfumes being considerate of those with sensitivities and allergies." Thank you for understanding.

What we're about

This is a meetup group for vegans and those interested in becoming vegan and learning about the plant based diet or lifestyle.

We hope to promote the social and educational aspects of veganism.

Our meetup group is about getting together for meals, lectures, watching documentaries/movies, going on field trips and making some new friends!

It is always great to share information, have fun and be with like-minded people. Even if you are not yet a "veggie", we still welcome everyone to join us for a meet up to see how healthy and delicious vegan food can be! We welcome those who are veg-curious.

Vegan is more than food choices, it is a lifestyle. Vegan does not include any flesh food or animal (fowl, fish, mammal, insects, etc) of any kind. All animal products and bi products are excluded, including all dairy. Vegans do not wear flesh-made products such as leather, skins and fur. We respect all animals, our fellow creatures, and work to protect them as well as the environment. Just being vegan is a very strong environmental and ecological act, conserving water, fuel and land resources.

Some people are vegan due to health and medical reasons, some due to compassion for living a non-violent lifestyle. Some live it for ethical reasons, the sake of the animals and others. Some embrace veganism for for health reasons, some for the economy. Eating a plant-based diet is less expensive than eating flesh foods. Some vegans have allergies to flesh foods and animal fluids. There are plenty of other reasons as well! Remember, heart attacks are mother nature's revenge for eating her creatures! :-)

Our membership extends over the entire North East Ohio area from out by Cedar Point almost to Pennsylvania and as far south as you'd care to drive.

Become a member (membership is free), and come to one of the many meetups! You are a stranger but once.
