Veg-Giving: A Veg Thanksgiving Potluck
November 17, 6p
Service Center for Contemporary Culture and Community-3819 Lafayette Rd., Indianapolis
To celebrate Thanksgiving, we’ve organized Veg-Giving, a vegan/vegetarian spin on the national holiday. Let’s make this the biggest turnout of the year! Bring your favorite veg holiday dish and see what others love to enjoy at the holidays as well.
*Bring your favorite Veg Thanksgiving dish to share
*Please include either the recipe or an ingredient list with your dish
*Bring your place setting if you wish – it saves on trash, but we will have disposables just in case
*We encourage you to bring a Vegan dish. Why? So that everyone can enjoy everything

As many of you may know Indianapolis Vegetarian Society has been working hard this past year reorganizing our structure so that we can offer more events & education for our members & the community. We are looking for dedicated volunteers who are interested in helping with marketing, organizing events, tabling booths, public education, etc. Volunteering for IVS is a rewarding experience (it is why we all do it!) full of adventures, food and people! We have volunteer opportunities of all kinds, for all people.
If you are already a volunteer, we are asking that you join us for the Volunteer Meeting. We are formalizing some aspects of the group, including the volunteer coordinating. This will allow us to better utilize volunteers, offer more exciting & frequent volunteer opportunities & make your volunteering experience more rewarding.
Volunteer Call Out Meeting
