Vegan Thanksgiving Community Potluck

Vegan Thanksgiving Community Potluck

Nov 23, 1:00pm - Nov 23, 5:00pm

Community Cafe
2444 Central Ave
Saint Petersburg, FL  33712 Map

Join us on Thanksgiving for a VEGAN community potluck! This event will be a much smaller but similar version of the annual ThanksVegan potluck in Tampa, which they are not able to have this year.

Each attendee should bring a vegan dish that serves 6-8 people, along with an ingredient list and serving utensils. Plates, napkins, forks, etc will be provided.

The contribution to cover those costs is $6 per person. The event will cost $16 for those who do not bring a vegan dish to pass.

Community Cafe will NOT be serving anything from our regular food menu, but we will serve the full drink menu.

We do have a microwave you may use to heat up your dish, and power strips for crock pots.

Please arrive no later than 1:30pm and we'll start serving at 2pm.

PLEASE comment here or email with what you'd like to bring so we don't have too much overlap. We also want to be sure we have certain bases covered.

Thank you, looking forward to having a St. Pete community vegan Thanksgiving with you all!
