Join us for a delicious potluck followed by a demo with Chef Missi Kruck on the rediscovering root vegetables and brassicas. This demo will feature how to cut, store, and cook the vegetables in the root and brassica families. Chef Missi Kruck is a healthy eating plant based chef whose mission is to empower people to make conscious decisions that benefit the planet and themselves.
The potluck and presentation will be in the Oak/Elm Room at the Marshall Center, 1009 E. McLoughlin, Vancouver, WA 98663 [see map]. This is just over the I-5 Bridge - very quick to reach from Portland. Join us for the potluck at 6:30pm, the presentation at 7:30, or both!
For the potluck, please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert; a card listing its ingredients; and plates and utensils for your use.

Northwest VEG potlucks are alcohol-free events. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org. A donation of $2-5 is suggested to help cover the cost of the room rental.
Want to see Cowspiracy but missed it at the Portland appearances? There will be a FREE showing at the First Unitarian Church on Sunday, Nov. 2nd at 1 PM in the Eliot Center, 1011 SW 12th, corner of SW 12th and Salmon St. Plan to stay for a short discussion afterward. Light snacks served starting at 12:30 but no food allowed in the screening area. This will be a perfect chance to see the film if you catch co-producer Keegan Kuhn's Q&A presentation at the NW VEG October Westside Portland Potluck. Cowspiracy is the 'game changer' film that clearly demonstrates the impacts of animal agriculture against a backdrop mystery of why this information has taken so long to attain a higher priority within mainstream environmental organizations.

The Tofurky Company invites you to join in Tofurky Trot 2014, this Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2014 at Mt. Tabor Park in Portland. Tofurky Trots are designed to support both the health and vitality of local communities and raise money for local groups supporting plant-based diets. This year's event will support NW VEG and Wildwood Farm Sanctuary. The race is 5k (3.1 miles) and is a run, trot, or walk open to all levels of physical fitness. It's a great day to enjoy the company of fellow plant eaters and highlight the benefits of plant-based diets on this largely carnivorous holiday.
