Veggie eaters band together

The Orillia Veggie Group made the local newspaper! On Saturday Oct. 11 the Packet ran a front page story titled Veggie-eaters band together (try this link if the other one doesn't work).

From the article:
The 20-person club meets once a month for a potluck dinner, where they socialize and share recipes. There are also “meat-eaters” in the club who joined to learn how to cook healthy dishes.

Losole said she would like to see the group expand and be able to host guest speakers during their monthly meals.

“I’d like to see people coming as a response to not being happy with the food supply. (The club) is a support system and it’s nice to be with people who think the same way,” she said. “It’s all about what is on your plate, where does that come from and what’s in it.”

october 5th

Just wanted to send a quick reminder about the Orillia Vegetarians monthly potluck this coming Sunday Oct 5th at 4:30pm. We are currently planning to meet at our usual location (231 Westmount Drive South in Orillia).

Please RSVP so that we know how many to expect (if numbers are small we may meet at someone's home instead).

The theme this month was originally scheduled to be "Soup Night"... but I'm not sure if we all want to eat that much soup or not? I am definitely planning on making a soup..... so others can feel free to do that as well, or just bring a "regular" potluck item to feed 4-5 people. Also, don't forget to bring a serving utensil and a printed copy of the recipe for your item. If possible, it's also helpful if people can bring their own plates, cutlery and drinking vessels.

If anyone has resources to share, please feel free to bring them for display!
