Help us Make a Movie!

February 28, 2015

We are excited to announce we are making a documentary and we need your support! The movie will explore the lives and stories of everyday people in our communities who share a common thread - they're all vegan. There are a number of great movies focusing on why to go vegan or featuring people new to veganism, but we want to spotlight how everyday vegans live their lives and how accessible the vegan lifestyle really is.

The movie is not only about the community, it is being created by the community! We are looking for stories to feature in the movie, so please consider submitting your story and supporting the project by making a tax-deductible donation.

NW VEG Gresham Area Potluck with Owner of Eatin' Alive

April 12 (5:00 PM)

Join us for a delicious potluck and yummy raw cooking demonstration with Paige Common, the owner of Eatin’ Alive, a raw, gluten-free foods business based in Portland, Oregon that uses as much local, organic produce as possible. They pride themselves on utilizing simple, healthy ingredients to provide robust, decadent food—collard green and sunflower seed wraps, zucchini noodle lasagna, cashew cheesecakes and much more. Eatin' Alive offers grab-and-go dishes as well as catering services. Ultimately, they hope to inspire our customers to rethink their definition of food and nourishment.

So please join Eatin' Alive and Northwest VEG as we hop into spring with ​some ​delicious new ideas on how to use ​fresh ​greens to prepare wraps and sauces as well as a light and decadent sweet treat. ​Inspiring​ plant strong recipes and samples​ will be provided.​

The potluck will be held at the Healing Hope Seventh Day Adventist Church, 15150 NE Glisan Street, Portland. Come to the potluck at 5:00pm, the demo at 6:30pm, or both! 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. Need plant-based ideas? Click here. If you come alone, figure the amount to serve 4-6 generously; increase the amount 4 servings for each additional person in your party/family. Northwest VEG potlucks are alcohol-free events. Please email Jeanne at for more information.
