View Full Version : Has anyone started a Raw food meetup?
10-08-2006, 08:58 AM
I surfed the net, and I see its possible to start a raw food meetup. To understand what I am talking about just go to meetup.com.
Anyway, I see that 75 people in my area singed up.. but no one has yet to take the initial step of paying the $20 it cost to get the group together and going. I would like to be that person in my area, because I have NO raw food friends in my area. But, my question is how to I find a location to have raw food potlucks? I dont know if I feel comfortable inviting a bunch of strangers in my home, and its too cold to do anything outside, living in the mountains in Western,MD.

The one that I went to was at the person's house. Maybe contact your local library and use one of their rooms. Depending on where you live maybe go to a local park?

I've done it. After you sign up, others will join you and you'll have contact info. Contact them and find out if they have room in their home and would be willing to open it up for a potluck.
You can do it in different homes each month.

I would like to do something like this...but I'm not sure if I want to do it at my house. Maybe at the local library, or at a nice raw restaraunt in NYC. There are no raw foodists here in Brentwood. As far as I know, I'm the only one. Maybe in the future, I may start one. Now isn't a good time for me.

We have one here in San Diego. You should do it! I think it is good to be around others who can offer support. They're pretty fun!

I think I might start up a Raw Food Meetup....when I'm ready. I probably won't be living where I'm at for too long, so I don't think it would be a good idea for me to start a Meetup until I'm back in NYC.

I did, sort off. We hold monthly meditations at our place, and serve only raw food at them! So, everyone knows what to expect. And doesn't. Because I invent new things to make each time. So, the real reason to meet is not food, but meditations. :D

You can have it at a Park or some public place. You can have a box for donations to cover your cost.........

We found a church that let us have our meet up there, free. We've also held one at Wild Oats. They didn't charge us because they also use the same speakers, but had we just wanted to use the facility for just a potluck, or to have a private speaker, we would have had to pay $5 per person. We also have held ours in homes. A lady names Karyn and myself started our meetup group in Nashville, TN 2 years ago with 22 coming to the first meeting and we now have over 140 members with about an average of 35 coming when we have a speaker and when we don't have a speaker, fewer come.
