Q&A and other important information:
Q: How does the potluck style dinner work?
A: Guests bring a dish labeled with the ingredients and their name on it somewhere so it can be picked up after being emptied and rinsed out.
A: Once you donate at door, someone will help you find a spot on the tables for your dish. Also, your name tag will have a number on it. *THE NUMBER ON YOUR NAME TAG IS THE ORDER OF WHO GOES UP TO THE FOOD TABLES WHEN IT’S TIME TO EAT. (Guests 1 thru 300) **We typically call out numbers in groups of 50 to go through the line at a time and as the line dissipates (moves quickly) we call up another set of 50.
Q: Do I have to bring a dish?
A: No, come join us and enjoy the wonderful vegan items from the guests who brought something for the dinner. There are two suggested donation amounts: one for guests who bring a dish and one for guests who do not.
Q: Why is bringing our own utensils, plates and cups rewarded?
A: We like to keep the cost of plates and utensils down and stay eco-friendly by reducing the amount of garbage and trash.
Q: Are we allowed to bring take out containers to take food home?
Q: Are we allowed a second trip through the food line?
A: Please be courteous when filling your plate on your first trip through the line as there will be many other guests that have not been through it yet. Once everyone has been through the food line once, you are welcome to take a second helping and if needed take your second helping home in a container. *Please be courteous of others when using take out containers
