If you’re attending the potluck for the first time, please do take a few minutes to read the following important information.

If you need further help, please send an email to bengaluruvegans@gmail.com with your contact number and we’ll contact you to guide you and provide information. If you are attending the potluck for the first time, we *strongly* encourage you to do this so that you don’t miss us at Cubbon Park. Please make sure that you email at least two days in advance.

1. *All* species are welcome! 🙂 You don’t have to be vegan to attend the potluck. You can join us even if you’re just curious about a vegan lifestyle or are interested to learn about veganism and its positive impacts.

2. Please bring one or more 100% vegan dishes to share. We usually have about 15-20 people attending. Bring enough food for 5-6 people to eat well and that’ll be enough.

3. The food could be something you have prepared or purchased. If you’ve purchased any food, please make sure there’s an ingredients list on the package so we can be assured that it is vegan. Companies change the ingredients in their products somewhat often, so kindly be careful.

4. If you’re unsure about what to bring then the best bets are fresh fruits and fruit juices. Everyone appreciates fruits and juices. 🙂

5. Please bring plates, glasses, bowls, forks, spoons and water for yourself. Everyone brings their own.

6. Please avoid plastic bags and non-recyclable packaging, plates, cutlery, etc. These are very harmful for animals as well as humans.

7. Come, relax, and enjoy the food and conversation!

Looking forward to meeting everyone. 🙂

You can expect us to be at Rani Park between 2 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.

The Bengaluru Vegans potlucks/meetings happen on the last Saturday of every month, except in the month of December when we don’t have one.
