Medford Friends Meeting House, 14 Union St, Medford, NJ 08055
Join VSSJ for a spring potluck dinner!

Guidelines for all 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.  To ensure there is enough food for everyone, 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 (and save you money), VSSJ encourages you to bring your own plate, cup, and utensils if possible (extra place settings will be available).  For safety reasons, 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.
