Orillia Vegetarians - community display

Just in case anyone is curious about the display we set up at various community events - here's a photo of it! If you have any great ideas for making it better, or if you know of an event where this display would be welcome, please email us at orilliaveg [at] gmail. com !! It is usually accompanied by a simple food item to entice visitors, and the recipe is given out on a card with our contact details. The recipe featured here was "Better than Tuna" chickpea salad with rice crackers.

This particular photo was taken at the Transition Community Fair that was held Nov 12-14 at St Pauls United Church. For more information on Transition Town Orillia, please go here. Also, a note of gratitude and recognition is always posted to acknowledge that the display board itself is on loan from Hospice Orillia - a local community organization who had an extra!

Info re: the Orillia Veggie Potluck

These are just some of the things you need to know about our Potlucks... let us know if you have any questions!

The location of our potluck changes each time (or it might get cancelled) depending on numbers, so it`s important to RSVP and someone can confirm location for you.

Please bring one potluck item per adult if possible.

Don't forget to bring some copies of your recipe.

This is a vegetarian group, but there are many vegans who attend. Also, nut and wheat allergies are common. If it is possible to leave such items "on the side" for your dish, please do so. If not, please be sure to bring a small sign to leave out next to your dish indicating that it contains an ingredient such as wheat, cheese, eggs or nuts. If you have questions about this request, just email beforehand for clarification :)
