Statewide vegetarian group forming!
The Central Jersey Vegetarian Group (CJVG) has joined up with VSSJ as a step in forming a state-wide vegetarian group!  VSSJ, along with our Vegetarian Neighbors and Atlantic Cape chapters, and CJVG will become chapters of the new group, which will be introduced at the first New Jersey VegFest on October 2nd in Morristown.  Please contact us at thevssj@gmail.com if interested in helping out with an existing chapter, or with starting chapters in Ocean County, north Jersey, and elsewhere.

Potluck dinner plus vegan soup sale and vegan chocolate sampling to benefit Have-A-Heart Guinea Pig Rescue (http://petfinder.com/shelters/NJ250.html).

Soup contributions for the soup sale are welcome! Please note that a soup contribution is in addition to your potluck contribution. Please bring a ladle; VSSJ will have extra containers for soup, and supply the chocolate.

VSSJ members: $3; $8 family; Non-members: $6; $15 family (to cover hall rental).  Be green: get $1 off ($3 family) if you bring reusable place settings!

Attendees should park in the front of the building and enter at the steeple.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for setup and cleanup.  To volunteer, RSVP, or for more info: thevssj@gmail.com or 609-848-VEG1 (8341).

For all VSSJ potlucks:
Each individual in your party (with the exception of children under 12) brings a vegetarian* dish to share that will feed at least 6 people (vegan** dishes preferred so that all types of vegetarians may enjoy the food), along with the recipe or a list of ingredients. Because of past issues with people not having enough to eat, please bring at least as much as your family is going to eat. VSSJ provides beverages, so please provide a food contribution. To promote recycling, VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (we will have extra place settings). Be green: get $1 off ($3 family) if you bring reusable place settings! Due to safety issues, children under 12 must be under parental supervision at all times. Please make sure to check in when you arrive.
* Vegetarian = No Meat, Fish, or Gelatin.
** Vegan = No Meat, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Gelatin, or Honey.

Not sure what to bring? Easy options include: garden salad, fruit salad, hummus with chips or crudités. For a list of recipe sites, visit http://recipes.njveg.com/ Write us at thevssj@gmail.com for more suggestions.
