Volunteer Opportunities in June


Volunteer for the June cooking class at Van Cleve Community Center on Thursday, June 19 at 7:00pm. The theme is simple vegan Mexican food. Volunteer positions include the transporting of supplies to and from the CAA office, setup, welcome team, assistance for the instructor during the class, and cleanup.

Volunteer for the June Potluck and Bonfire at the home of Jennifer Swick in Roseville on Friday, June 27 at 6:30pm. The theme is “Fiesta!” Attendees will bring Latin American dishes. Volunteer positions include setup, maintenance during the event, washing dishes, and general cleanup.

If you’re interested in offering your time to help make either of these upcoming events a success, contact justin@exploreveg.org.



Outreach volunteer work involves talking to members of the general public about animal agriculture and the work of Compassionate Action for Animals. Volunteers should be friendly, knowledgeable about the issues and our mission, and comfortable interacting with strangers. Leafleting and tabling are both very effective forms of outreach.

Leaflet at Rock the Garden, a summer music festival at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden on Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22.

Table at the Minneapolis Pride Festival, a celebration of the LGBT community at Loring Park on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29. At this event, volunteers will offer festival attendees one dollar to watch a five-minute segment of Mercy for Animals’ hard-hitting documentary “Farm to Fridge”.

If interested in volunteering at either of these outreach opportunities, contact grace.vansusteren@exploreveg.org.

It’s a fiesta!

Join us for a festive potluck and bonfire at the home of Jennifer Swick in Roseville on Friday, June 27 at 6:30pm. The theme for this event is “Fiesta!” Get inspired by the fresh and flavorful world of Latin American cuisine, and bring a vegan dish to share. These monthly potlucks are an excellent way to sample new vegan foods and to connect with a community of like-minded individuals.

We’ll gather around a blazing bonfire in Jennifer’s backyard. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we’ll have a game night instead. In that case, bring your favorite games to play.

Looking for recipe ideas? Consider a maize-based dish, such as tamales, tacos, or enchiladas, along with a complementary condiment, like salsa, guacamole, or mole. Or how about a beverage? Mate, hibiscus tea, and horchata are all great options. And don’t forget dessert! Who wouldn’t love to try a vegan version of tres leches cake, flan, or ride pudding?

Now are you wondering where to find a vegan version of these delectable dishes? Simply google it! You may also visit International Vegetarian Union’s website for a large selection of tantalizing options. Options abound on the internet, and our Facebook event page will be updated with recipe ideas so that you’ll be sure to have plenty of inspiration if you need it.

Please RSVP on the Facebook event page or via email. If you prefer to RSVP by phone, call 612-276-2242.
