This dinner is special, because prepared by a certified Nutrition Consultant, Patricia Allen Koot, NC. Alkalinizing, immunity-building, cancer-fighting fine foods prepared to please your palate while promoting your health. Bring a container and take some home with you.
After dinner, enjoy a block-buster presentation which covers the field of vegan nutrition. Jack Norris, RD will be sharing via video about the health benefits and concerns of a vegan diet. It will be a balanced, no holds barred presentation. He will cover the findings of the large studies following thousands of vegetarians and vegans over time, comparing incidence of various diseases, lifespan and much more. He will also address nutrition concerns such as Vitamin B12, omega-3 fats, and soy, focusing on published peer-reviewed studies. Jack has received excellent reviews for objectivity in his research and presentation here.

It all happens this Wed. evening, June 13 at 6:00 pm, at the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco. Take the elevator to the first floor, then security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event.
A fifteen dollar requested donation covers the all you can eat vegan dinner plus the presentation on vegan nutrition. The nutritionist donates her time. Funds go toward facility rental, food, transport and related costs.
Enjoy a great dinner and an important presentation, this week at your vegan oasis right in the heart of downtown.
