Look for the Northwest VEG banner. We'll have Coconut Bliss ice cream for everyone!

Please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert (we'll supply the drinks); a card listing its ingredients; and plates, utensils and cups for your use; figure the amount to serve 6 generously. Bring your croquet, badminton, bocce balls, or any other lawn or table games! We have reserved a number of picnic tables, but you may want to bring lawn chairs or blankets. If it looks like rain, we'll meet at West Hills UU Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Road. Check our website for updates, or call (503) 746-8344.

Come learn more about her journey and how it might be helpful to you. Recipe and samples of a raw smoothie will be provided. In keeping with the theme of our potluck speaker, you might consider bringing a raw dish to share, although cooked food is also welcome.
