Veggies 38th Anniversary (Events to be planned)

Veggies Catering Campaign was established as a fully vegan volunteer-led cooperative on 18th October 1984

Watch this space for events at Nottingham’s Sumac Centre and beyond.

This is what we got up on our 37th Anniversary Weekend in 2021


The Vegetarian Society says:

“Veggies Catering Campaign was set up in Autumn 1984 by four friends who were frustrated about the lack of vegetarian fast food available in Nottingham. Their intention was both to provide an ethical fast food stall in the city, and to take the veggie message to a wider audience by participating in demonstrations and gatherings. One of the first things the founders did was to take a giant veggieburger along to a Vegetarian Society protest outside the infamous Royal Smithfield show!

“Veggies has grown and evolved quite a lot over the last [26] years, but the ethical message has remained the same. All food served has been vegan from the start, and as minimally packaged and locally-sourced as possible and practical.

“In addition to producing the famous frozen burgers and sosages which are widely popular in Nottingham, compiling the Animal Rights calendar and Contacts Directory, helping run the Sumac Resource Centre, and fundraising for a range of good causes, Veggies has a tightly-packed events diary. The co-op provides food in all sorts of situations, from carrying boxes of samosas and cakes on protest marches, to cooking up a posh spread for a weddings and other parties. New volunteers are always welcome.”

From The History of Veggies:

In 1984, Tom and Clare from Nottingham’s animal rights group had the idea of presenting the manager of a local McDonalds with a huge veggieburger to represent an ethical alternative to the products of death and destruction sold there.

This was such a success that the logical next step was to do the same thing for the public every day, first from a mobile food van, then from early 1985 from a daily market stall, literally on the next street to McNasty.

Veggies has been a streetwise catering campaign ever since, reaching a highpoint with the 2006 Vegan Society Award as ‘Best Vegan Caterer’.

Many years of ‘campaign catering’ has kept Veggies on the front line. Whether driving along a drainage ditch to support campaigners protecting a peat moor, or jumping the barriers onto a reclaimed motorway, Veggies food always gets through.

From Peace News:

“While there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields”, said Tolstoy. This is why the vegan and peace movements are two sides of the same coin. “One struggle, one fight”, as they say in the animal rights movement.

Veggies has been seen at Molesworth US military base on a snow-strewn February morning in 1985; at Menwith Hill, Fylingdales and Aldermaston; at Faslane 365 and at Heckler & Koch offices in Nottingham, putting a spotlight on the world’s second largest supplier of small arms.

Veggies and Peace News have woven a path together through the decades. From PN’s time in Nottingham, not 100 yards from Veggies’ base at the Rainbow Centre – now evolved into the Sumac Centre, one of the emerging network of independent social centres – to catering for the first Peace News Summer Camp. Veggies’ summer tour also takes in the Animal Rights and Earth First Gatherings, Climate Camps and DSEi protests against the arms trade.

… and this is what we got up to in 2009

Nottingham Green Festival Sunday 11th September 2022

‘Warning: time is running out limit climate chaos – share skills to save the planet’

Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottingham Peace Festival from which it has grown.

Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park.

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 38 year history. We were pleased now to be joined by many other vegan caterers and other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.

GreenFest by Tash

With the covid-19 crisis behind us we hope that the Green Festival will continue to break records in terms of visitors & stalls.

With your support the 29th Nottingham Green Festival will return bigger & better on Sunday 11th September 2022.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Sneinton ‘Vegan’ Market, Nottingham . Twice-monthly

Nottingham Vegan Market

 

On 31st October, 2015, in advance of World Vegan Day, Sneinton Market held an event to showcase great tasting vegan food. Following this a monthly vegan market in Nottingham was launched on 5th December 2015.

Nottingham’s Sneinton Vegan Market became the established event to regularly celebrate and showcase great tasting vegan food and drink, crafts, animal rescues & other products/services. However it has sadly lost its way and is no longer in tune with the values of the vegan community.

Originally Sneinton Market said:

“We are looking for VEGAN food traders and all kinds of cruelty free cosmetics, clothing, awareness raising, workshops. Product list must be approved by the market team to ensure the brief is met.”

This wording was from sneintonmarket.co.uk which is no longer available. The Sneinton Vegan Market website now lists all kinds of traders without any indication as to which are vegan and which are not. Some traders have sold non-vegan products at the ‘vegan’ market – efforts to clarify this have been begrudgingly made.

However there are several Nottingham vegan market traders that deserve our continued support, as they have few other trading opportunities.

Current vegan traders

This directory is compiled by Veggies Catering Campaign, independently of the market, to support past, present & future vegan traders.

Our first tweet in support of Nottingham’s Vegan Market in October 2015

Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub

Drop-In on Wednesdays & Sundays 12am – 4pm . Collection or delivery at other times by arrangement.

During 2020 we 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 support an ethical alternative to many supermarkets. As we prepare to reopen Sumac as a regular social centre we are reducing the range of fresh fruit & veg and moving towards establishing a diy Food Hub Club for access to ethical loose & packaged wholefoods and ecological household products.

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 & 5pm 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. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in jars & bottles. Empty containers are welcome to maintain our supply.

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 will look at deferred payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.

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

Map of 1 mile radius of Veggies & Sumac CentreWe 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.

Please join our Food Hub group on facebook updates, new products, delivery/collection details etc, or see details on the product list, our Food Hub page or this Facebook post.

 

Mega Charity Booksale by ExLibris

Annual booksale in aid of local charities:

Host Nottingham support asylum seekers and refugees in Nottingham

We R Here : “Many people experience significant traumatic life events such as domestic violence, grief, loss and bereavement. We are here to bring support to the whole family including carers.”

Our rescued books include: new, genre, unusual, modern and classic fiction; every non-fiction subject under the sun; books on leisure interests such as gardening, crafts, cake decoration & cookery; hardbacks and paperbacks; scarce/collectable books at lower prices than online; lots of children’s books; and the odd really weird book that you wouldn’t believe could, or maybe should, exist. There are also DVDs and handmade bags.
We always have low prices (starting at 10p), to make books accessible to everyone. Even our collectable or scarce books are priced more cheaply than online.

Children may ride the “ExLibris Express”.
You are invited to bring a tin of vegetarian food, to be donated to Netherfield food bank.

We will be asking for volunteers to: help carry heavy boxes of books; circulate the poster on social media; distribute leaflets through letterboxes and posters to shops/pubs/community centres etc; mind the back garden and be Toilet Monitors, etc. We’re getting older, and appreciate help more and more each year!

Thanks everybody for all your support the over the last previous 15 years. We hope we can re-home another load of books and support important local charities again this year.

Masky greetings.
