Join us this Friday for *Vegan Potluck for Social Change*!
Hello all, as you may have noticed, we’ve decided to postpone “DIY DATE NIGHT“, Vegan Iron Chef’s Italian American-themed holiday event, until Friday, February 10, 2017. With the shock of the national election results, it just didn’t sit right with us in our hearts to do something so soon, while awesome, that felt frivolous. We didn’t want to distract, or carry on as normal. We truly want to inspire people through food and community, but right now, it’s time to aspire to change, connect, and support all of the communities we care about.
With that, the members of Vegan Iron Chef nonprofit are supporting “Vegan Potluck for Social Change” this Friday Dec. 9th, (the same time + place as the original event), generously hosted by People’s Food Co-op. We invite you to join us at this fundraiser, get to know your fellow community members, talk about what’s possible, and enjoy donations from Sizzle Pie, Sweetpea Baking Co, Devin’s Dive, Missionary Chocolates, Lion Heart Kombucha, Happy Mountain Kombucha, Sip, Roast Magazine and Food Fight! Vegan Grocery.
The intention is to “join together to raise funds for those who will be most impacted by the new administration, share vegan food and share your ideas for making the world a better place”.
Event proceeds benefit:
- Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, a national non-profit civil rights organization formed in 1968 to protect the rights of Latinos in the United States
- Unite Oregon, an organization led by people of color, immigrants and refugees, rural communities, and people experiencing poverty who work across Oregon to build a unified movement for social justice.
