Veganuary

January 1st sees the beginning of Veganuary

Veganuary, in association with Viva! invite you to eat delicious, healthy food, save lives and help the environment. Join thousands of people going vegan for the month of January.

If you’re not currently vegan this is the perfect opportunity to try!

Veganuary’s great resource of recipes, health and nutrition tips, and loads of other useful stuff will help guide you through …. It couldn’t be simpler with a 31 full days’ worth of menu ideas.

Sneinton Essentials Market

As a response to the covid-19 crisis Veggies are proving basic vegan larder staples at the Sneinton Essentials Market every Saturday between 10 and 2pm.

A large range of foods & cleaning materials can be ordered from our Community Food Hub from the extensive stock list by email to sales@veggies.org.uk, for collection at the Market.

On the day we also have:

  • Veggies Burgers
  • Various pasties & Sausage Rolls
  • Vegan Cakes – including Gluten free
  • Fresh baked bread Bread – wholemeal; sour dough; gluten free
  • Teas & Coffee
  • Veggies Mixes to make your own at home!

Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub

Drop-In Every Wednesday & Sunday 11am – 2pm . Collection or delivery every day by arrangement.
We have converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from the madness of Tesco & Asda.

Goods can be ordered from the stock list and order form by email to sales@veggies.org.uk, for collection from Sumac Centre or delivery to about one mile radius. There is a drop-in facility between 11am & 3pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.

You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.

Many items come from bulk supplies, weighed to order. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in reusable containers.

We are baking wholemeal, sour dough and gluten free bread, and have flour and yeast available for home baking.

We have a system for the safe handling of cash, with a separate supply of clean coins for change.  We’re working on payment by bank transfer, paypal or card too.

We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and can defer payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.

We also are redistributing donated foods, and foods from businesses that have had to close. If you have surplus foods to share, please contact us

Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.

As we are volunteers with limited capacity we are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7).  Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.

Roots Natural Foods (Sherwood), The V Spot (Sherwood), The Natural Food Company (City Centre), Dash Vegan, the Health Food Store (Mapperley) and others may also offer a similar service.

Animal Aid’s ever-popular London Christmas Fair is back for another year. Now on Saturday to enable better travel by public transport.
A fun day out for all the family, the event is a perfect excuse to indulge in a bit of vegan food while doing some shopping for the festive season!

There will be more than 100 stalls with a wonderful variety of animal-free and Eco-conscious clothing, shoes and belts, handmade or hemp fashion items. Indulge in the diverse selection of skincare products – perfect presents. And so much more on offer, from aromatherapy to wildlife art. There will be three vegan caterers, plus a huge selection of vegan cakes, beers, cheeses, confectionery and delicious savoury pies on offer.

There is also a crèche and children’s workshop.

Keep an eye on the Animal Aid website and Facebook page for the full programme.

There is now a dedicated Twitter account for Animal Aid’s Christmas Fairs and other events. Please follow  @AnimalAidFayre.

If you are interested in booking a stall, please email Iain


Veggies Food is Here

Veggies Catering Campaign will be catering at the Fair. Veggies are a volunteer-led, community-based, social enterprise, promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for humans, other animals and the environment.

Volunteer with Veggies after 10am to help with serving teas, cakes or pasties. Even one hour’s volunteering would enable one of the core crew to have a break to look around the fair. If you would like to help, contact us or find Veggies on facebook

Veggies Climate Change Campaigns

Go Vegan
To get to this event Veggies will emit approx 160kg CO2 (total distance: 131 miles each way – route).

However by helping an estimated 500 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 1000 kg CO2

If ONE customer goes Vegan For Life, they will save 1.5 tonnes CO2 every year, as well as saving 4022 animals lives, and enabling all the world’s peoples to receive a Fair Share of the world’s resources. [references]
