It was a full house at Matthews Recreation Center on Saturday. Most of those in attendance brought a dish to share and wow did we have a wide variety of dishes to choose from! From traditional Tofurky and Field Roast roasts to several stuffings; super soups to happenin' hot dishes; all the way down the line to the don't blink twice or they'll be gone desserts.
Before people made their trip for seconds, many stopped by to purchase raffle tickets. Tickets were being sold for $1 a piece and items raffled included: bodylish gift basket, "cheese" lovers gift basket, a years supply of Newman O's cookies, Esse reusable bags, Bright Sun candle, vegan smores gift basket, breakfast gift basket, Do It Green! catalogs, skin care products from Super Salve, apparel from Northern Sun, books from Vegetarian Resource Group, a years subscription to the Vegetarian Journal, a free nutrition consultation and a veg friendly lunch box!
