Volunteer for the 2017 Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck

Volunteers help make the event fun and meaningful for all!

Help out with the 15th Annual Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck on Saturday, November 11 at Matthews Park in Minneapolis. When you volunteer, you can do all these awesome things:

  • Help foster a community of people who care about animals
  • Help people who are new to vegan eating feel more comfortable
  • Meet other people who care about animals

The potluck will be held from noon to 2:30pm, and we need volunteer help from 8am to 4pm. All positions will include breaks to enjoy the food.

Sign up now to volunteer at the potluck!

We are also still recruiting folks to help organize this event. Sign up here to join the planning committee!
