Veggies was established as a fully vegan volunteer-led cooperative on 18th October 1984
Sunday 17th October
This Sunday 11am-2pm is Veggies 37th Anniversary Brunch, part of the regular Sumac Sunday Brunch and Food Hub.
Celebrations will continue from 2pm at the Forest Fields Social Club, here at the Sumac Centre, with DJs, possible fun & games, and of course there will be Samosas For Social Change and Vegan cake!
It would be great to have lots of Veggies lovely crew, friends and customers join with us as we have missed you all, and had no opportunity to celebrate our double-18th last year.
Saturday 16th October
Also, on Saturday 16th at 5pm and 7pm People’s Kitchen meal is a fundraiser for Palestinian support, by Steve, a veggies Volunteer since the early 1990’s!
Monday 18th October
Our actual anniversary is on Monday and we’re going to London to provide Campaign Catering to the Free The MBR Beagles demo at the Home Office & Parliament (calling for a wholesale scientific review of all animal testing).
Sadly it’ll be a quieter anniversary this year, although usually you’d expect more from us.
This is what we got up to in 2009
