In conjunction with other groups across the world who organize “Meatout” events to mark March 20 – the first day of Spring – the Kanawha Valley Vegan Potluck Group invites the public to their own “Meatout Monday” Potluck from 5:30-7:15 tonight at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at 520 Kanawha Blvd. West in Charleston.
The event is designed to provide guests an opportunity to sample a variety of vegan dishes while learning about the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet. Members of the group will share their personal stories and all are encouraged to swap recipes.
Live music will be provided by Minnesota Riot Grrrrl Folk Collective member Shannon Murray, who blends self-penned songs on the struggles for existence with traditional labor and folk covers. Green smoothie samples will be provided, and guests also will have a chance to win $10 gift certificates donated by Bluegrass Kitchen, Healthy Life Market, Mission Savvy, Starling’s Coffee and Provisions and Tricky Fish!
There is no cost to attend, but an offering will be collected to help cover use of the building and entertainment. For more information on the international movement, visit www.meatout.org.
