                                  FOR ALL VSSJ POTLUCKS:

                                  Each individual in your party (with the exception of children under 12) brings a vegetarian* dish to share that will feed at least 6 people (vegan** dishes preferred so that all types of vegetarians may enjoy the food), along with the recipe or a list of ingredients.  Because of past issues with people not having enough to eat, please bring at least as much as your family is going to eat.  VSSJ provides beverages, so please provide a food contribution.  To promote recycling, VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (we will have extra place settings).  Due to safety issues, children under 12 must be under parental supervision at all times.  Please make sure to check in at the door when you arrive.

                                  Vegetarian = No Meat, Fish, or Gelatin.

                                  Vegan = No Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Gelatin, or Honey.

                                  Not sure what to bring?  Easy options include:  garden salad, fruit salad, hummus with chips or crudités.  For a list of recipe sites, visit

                                  http://recipes.njveg.com. Write us at thevssj@... for more suggestions.

                                    Each individual in your party (with the exception of children under 12) brings a vegetarian* dish to share that will feed at least 6 people (vegan** dishes preferred so that all types of vegetarians may enjoy the food), along with the recipe or a list of ingredients.  Because of past issues with people not having enough to eat, please bring at least as much as your family is going to eat.  VSSJ provides beverages, so please provide a food contribution.  To promote recycling, VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (we will have extra place settings).  Due to safety issues, children under 12 must be under parental supervision at all times.  Please make sure to check in at the door when you arrive.

                                    Vegetarian = No Meat, Fish, or Gelatin.

                                    Vegan = No Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Gelatin, or Honey.

                                    Not sure what to bring?  Easy options include:  garden salad, fruit salad, hummus with chips or crudités.  For a list of recipe sites, visit http://recipes.njveg.com.  Write us at thevssj@... for more suggestions.

                                     

                                    *FOR ALL VSSJ RETAURANT TRIPS:

                                    Reservations must be placed with VSSJ, at least 24 hours before the event.  Out of fairness to the restaurant, cancellations are requested at least 24 hours in advance.  Please plan to pay in cash. When we dine at non-vegetarian restaurants, only vegetarian dishes may be ordered.

                                                    Subject: GMOs in our food supply

                                                    Summary: Living a predominately plant-based lifestyle is a better choice for our planet, our body, and our conscience.  Yet, if we are not mindful of the kind of plants we consume and the degradation of our food supply through genetic engineering, our health and that of our environment will suffer the consequences. VSSJ joins with members of GMOFreeNJ in hosting a presentation on the dangers of GMOs in our food supply with a screening of Jeffrey Smith's seminal documentary on genetic engineering entitled "Genetic Roulette, The Gamble of Our Lives".

                                                    Presenters:  Barbara Thomas and Keith Monahan of GMOFree New Jersey.

                                                    This event is FREE and open to the public, so invite a friend!

                                                    Vegetarian starter kits and food samples will be provided!

                                                      Everyone is welcome! VSSJ events are open to the public, except when noted as members only.  Please check your email on the day of the event for the possibility of cancellation. If you're not on our Yahoo email list, please click on the "Mailing List" link on the left to add your name. Please contact VSSJ at thevssj@... or 609-848-VEG1 (8341) for additional information, directions, or to volunteer.


                                                      *For VSSJ Potlucks:

                                                      Each individual in your party (with the exception of children under 12) brings a vegetarian* dish to share that will feed at least 6 people (vegan dishes preferred so that all types of vegetarians may enjoy the food), along with the recipe or a list of ingredients. Because of past issues with people not having enough to eat, please bring at least as much as your family is going to eat. VSSJ provides beverages, so please provide a food contribution. To promote recycling, VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (we will have extra place settings). Be green: get $1 off ($3 family) if you bring reusable place settings! Due to safety issues, children under 12 must be under parental supervision at all times. Please check in when you arrive.

                                                      Vegetarian = No Meat, Fish, or Gelatin.

                                                      Vegan = No Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Gelatin, or Honey.

                                                      Not sure what to bring? Easy options include: garden salad, fruit salad, hummus with chips or crudités.

                                                      *For VSSJ Restaurant Trips:

                                                      Reservations must be placed with VSSJ, at least 24 hours before the event. Out of fairness to the restaurant, cancellations are requested at least 24 hours in advance. Please plan to pay in cash. When we dine at non-vegetarian restaurants, only vegetarian dishes may be ordered.

                                                        *For VSSJ Potlucks:

                                                        Each individual in your party (with the exception of children under 12) brings a vegetarian* dish to share that will feed at least 6 people (vegan dishes preferred so that all types of vegetarians may enjoy the food), along with the recipe or a list of ingredients. Because of past issues with people not having enough to eat, please bring at least as much as your family is going to eat. VSSJ provides beverages, so please provide a food contribution. To promote recycling, VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (we will have extra place settings). Be green: get $1 off ($3 family) if you bring reusable place settings! Due to safety issues, children under 12 must be under parental supervision at all times. Please check in when you arrive.

                                                        Vegetarian = No Meat, Fish, or Gelatin.

                                                        Vegan = No Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Gelatin, or Honey.

                                                        Not sure what to bring? Easy options include: garden salad, fruit salad, hummus with chips or crudités.
