Plant-Based Parties & Potlucks

Plant-Based Parties & Potlucks are the place to be for family fun, delicious and nutritious plant-based food, and great community!

 

All are welcome!  Please review details below.

Due to the pandemic, physical potluck gatherings have been cancelled through 2020.
Instead, Roseburg and Glide have joined forces to provide virtual potlucks every other month through 2020. Jump on Zoom with your dinner, ready to connect in small groups, share your recipe, and connect with new and old friends. Hear what’s new with UC-VEG and then… scheduled guest presenters will join us on Zoom! Watch the live presentation followed by Q&A! 

During Non-pandemic times:

Parties take place monthly throughout Douglas County. Please contact us to RSVP!

Roseburg Location:

First United Methodist Church 1771 W. Harvard (the location of the Umpqua Valley Farmers’ Market and the West Side Community Garden)

Glide Location:

Glide Rural Fire Protection District 18910 N Umpqua Hwy, Glide, OR 97433

  1. A dish to share that has no meat, no eggs, or dairy (vegan). It can be a main dish, side dish, non-alcoholic beverage, salad, or dessert.
  2. A card listing your dish’s ingredients in dark ink and clear print
  3. A serving utensil for your dish

If you’d like to come, but don’t feel so confident in your cooking skills, don’t let that hold you back! Let us know, and we can figure out another way that you can contribute and take part.

Volunteer: If you’d like to help with creating a festive, all-inclusive atmosphere, please contact UC-VEG (umpquacommunityveg@gmail.com)! Volunteers are needed for setup and cleanup, decorations, greeting, tabling, A/V, transportation, picking up supplies, planning and coordination. All are welcome!

Each Pure Plant-Based Party has its own theme. Pull out your festive attire (optional), start thinking about your next fantastic recipe (resources below), and who you’re going to bring along! Come celebrate healthy living with UC-VEG! Contact us about the next Pure Potluck Party!
