On Friday, September 18, the Humboldt Vegetarian Society will host a vegan potluck and free screening of the film, Vegetarian Cooking with Compassionate Cooks, at the Humboldt Area Foundation Community Center, 373 Indianola Road in Bayside.
This event is open to the public and is free of charge. Attendees are welcome to attend either the potluck or film screening alone, or enjoy the entire evening. Potluck participants should bring one vegan dish to share and their own plates, cups, and utensils. (Vegan means no animal products, including meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, etc.) Dinner will begin at 6:00, followed by the film screening at 7:00.
Vegetarian Cooking with Compassionate Cooks, hosted by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and Alka Chandna, is an engaging, energetic, and informative film that demonstrates six tantalizing yet easy-to-make dishes, including nutritional facts and shopping tips. The Compassionate Cooks also answer a number of frequently asked questions regarding vegetarianism. Colleen and Alka emphasize fast and healthful meals, create decadent dairy-free desserts, demystify tofu and other soy products, and present a gorgeous centerpiece that is perfect for the holidays or any special occasion.
Free child care will be provided during the movie.
