Wilmington Vegan’s May Potluck & Lecture by Dr Will Tuttle

6pm, Thursday, May 5th, 2016

This month we have a very special guest – Dr Will Tuttle, author of the #1 best selling book The World Peace Diet!! He will be giving a presentation from 7-8pm. We’re starting the potluck early – at 6pm. Please be seated by 7pm for the lecture and please keep voices/kids quiet during the talk. Our potluck theme is still Mexican, in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. If you’re attending the lecture and not eating, you don’t need to bring anything! This event is FREE.

Healing Our World: A Deeper Look at Food
A lecture/presentation by Will Tuttle, PhD
Author of the #1 Amazon best-seller The World Peace Diet, Dr. Will Tuttle delivers an inspiring talk about the food we choose, where it comes from, and how it affects us physically, culturally, and emotionally. You will learn how to make positive changes that promote wellness, encourage wisdom, and minimize our eco-footprints on the Earth.

For our May potluck, bring your favorite vegan enchiladas, burritos, tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, tamales, Mexican salads, nachos, queso dip, guacomole, and so on (homemade or store-bought, just bring a list of ingredients). The purpose of this event is to make (or purchase) a new or favorite dish to share with others, get together and socialize with other like-minded folks, and enjoy small samples of the yummy vegan dishes everyone else brings. Please bring a good amount of food to share and extra if you’re bringing children or there’s more than one person in your party.

Bring a list of ingredients along with your dish (or even better, the recipe!) Remember: this is a vegan safe-space event and DISHES MUST BE 100% VEGAN, with no meat, no fish, no milk, no butter, no eggs, no chicken stock, no honey, and so on. Please ask if you have any questions. Please also bring YOUR OWN UTENSILS, BOWL, PLATE and drink. This is a TRASH-FREE EVENT which means we are not generating any trash – please bring only reusable items, no paper or plastic.

LOCATION: The potluck is located at the Kitchen & Lounge community building at South Front Apartments. Use the gate located on Greenfield Street at 2nd Street, across the street from Satellite Bar. The gate is open until 7pm. Drive straight in all the way until the end of the road and turn right to find parking. Parking is permitted only in the spaces without numbers. After parking, walk over to the lounge located at the center of the complex. The lounge entrance is on the opposite side of the building (facing Front St).
