The Dearborn Heights Caroline Kennedy Library is hosting a showing of the movie, “Eating Animals” on Wednesday, March 27 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm. Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, this is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. It offers attainable, common-sense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but also one that affects every aspect of life. Plant-based food samples will be served.

Please join us for a Vegan Potluck Saturday, April 6, in the Fahs Chapel from 12-2PM at the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor, UUAA (4001 Ann Arbor Saline Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48013).

Please note this is the last potluck at UUAA until the fall, so please plan to attend.  We would love to see you there!  AND if you bring a non-vegan friend or family member, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $20 gift card to Vedge Cafe in Ann Arbor! We want to spread the word of all the tasty vegan foods we all eat every day, so we encourage you to invite one (or more) of your non-vegan friends to come with you (they do not need to bring a dish, but you might want to bring a little more to share with others).

This event is hosted by the Mindful Eating Team of UUAA (http://www.uuaa.org/index.php/social-justice/faith-in-action/locavores-a-mindful-eating) and VegMichigan (http://vegmichigan.org/).

Please bring a vegan dish without meat, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, or other animal products. Enjoy the company of fellow mindful eaters, share information, and eat delicious food!

• Please bring your own table service and serving tools; and

• A list of ingredients in your dish and/or the recipe

ALL ARE WELCOME – you do not need to be a member of UUAA or VegMichigan to attend.  And a reminder, bring your non-vegan friends for your chance to win!

Questions? Contact Sheila Sanders at (734) 645-0405 or sheilasanders@comcast.net or Angie Sullivan at angie@vegmichigan.org.
