INVeg Community Meetups
We are wanting to become a lot more active and help build a stronger vegan community. We would like to have more monthly events than just the potlucks. We are considering a monthly meetup at a local restaurant such as Boots or Allie’s Vegan Pizza. We also will be starting up the Spokane Veggie Running Group again when the weather gets a bit warmer. If you would like to be notified of our INVeg events please subscribe to our events on our Facebook or Meetup page.
Spokane Veggie Running group usually meets every Wednesday but is taking a break because of how busy we are with Spokane VegFest and one of the coordinators broke his foot and is in a cast. After vegfest, we will be starting the group up again. If you are interested in joining us then please join the group on facebook. We meet at 6pm usually in front of Boots Bakery,but the location does change from time to time so double check facebook before you go. There are Walkers, Runners and even Rollerbladers in the group. If you would like to coordinate another type of outdoor activity like a bike ride or rock climbing day please let us know.
We have a new volunteer who is going to help create a parenting community for our region. You can connect with other parents in the facebook group or the facebook page. The purpose of this group is to have a place where parents can get together and share stories. If you would like to help with this, please email us.
Please join us for our monthly potlucks, held at the Spokane Woman’s Club, from 5-7 pm on the third Sunday of each month. Most months we bring a speaker or chef to present on a plant-powered topic.
Each year INVEG provides free meals to local vegans who are unable to afford a nice meal for the holiday. This event is 100% supported by the generosity of our local INVEG members. If you would like to donate towards the 2015 Tofurkey drive you can make a donation using our paypal donation button. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
