Each year during the holiday season, Wilmington Vegan does a fundraiser to support an animal in need. Last year we adopted a turkey from Farm Sanctuary and raised enough money to feed our lovely Anna for a year! This year, we are lending our support to the GoFundMe campaign for two (soon to be three!) rescue cows that are living locally. Money raised will be used for food and supplies for Buttercup (pictured below with WV board member Sandra Sharpe), Buttercup’s baby due this winter, and the newest rescue, Daisy. Please take the time to read their story and consider donating via the GoFundMe page here: https://www.gofundme.com/buttercupcow.
The purpose of this event is to make (or purchase) a new or favorite Thanksgiving-themed 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 your favorite fall inspired dishes to the October potluck! Sweet potato casserole, butternut squash, broccoli chickpea bake, zucchini bread, fall salads, brussel sprouts, polenta onion bake, black eyed pea chili, rice with cherries and pecans, root veggie au gratin, pot pie, and pretty much anything involving pumpkin, corn, apples, cranberries, cinnamon, etc. Plus, we’re having a bake sale! Save some cash for out-of-this-world vegan goodies by Sandra!!

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 100% WASTE-FREE EVENT which means we are not generating any trash – please bring only reusable items, no paper or plastic. Alcohol is permitted.
Our potlucks take place the first Thursday of every month (except Nov & Dec) at 6:30pm 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, after that you’ll need to enter a code. 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 (facing Front St).
