Veg PEI Potluck
March 27 & April 24

If you are a vegan or vegan-curious, join fellow Islanders at Veg PEI’s monthly community potluck at 7 pm on March 27 at Trinity United Church, 220 Richmond Street, Charlottetown. If you’d like to share a dish, remember that all dishes must be vegan—so absolutely no meat, fish, seafood, dairy, eggs, or honey. Please bring your own plate/bowl, utensils, napkins, drinks, etc. This cuts down on waste and clean-up. Bring a serving utensil for your dish and a list of ingredients that you used to make it. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Meal begins at 7 pm. Admission is by donation. Julain Molnar will be attending both potlucks and will provide samples of her Fresh Start Fauxmage Dairy-Free Goodness Cheese.
