Conscious Eating Conference 2017

United Poultry Concerns’ 6th Annual Conscious Eating Conference once again bring expert speakers to Berkeley, CA to share ideas about the best food choices we can make for the planet, ourselves, and other animals.
The conference explores the ethics of eating and the effect of agriculture on animals and the planet, and why it matters.
This year the conference focuses on the question, How Does Religion Help or Hinder Animal Liberation? According to Pew research, 84% of the world population, and 78% of the U.S. population, consider themselves religious or have a religious identity. Many animal activists believe that spiritual communities are a “low-hanging fruit” for vegan advocacy, but are they? What do various religions say about our relationship to animals and the natural world? Should we work within these communities or leave religion behind? We will explore these questions through speakers representing Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Atheism.
Conscious Eating Conference Featured Speaker: Carol Adams!
Carol Adams is a feminist-vegan advocate, activist, and the author of numerous books including The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory.
Don’t miss seeing this legend of the animal advocacy community on March 11 in Berkeley, CA.

March 2016 – Potluck

Saturday, March 26, 2016
Chico Public Library

Bring a 100% plant-based dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. If you don’t cook, that’s okay — bring something from the store! Your dish should serve 6 people. Just a heads up: soup is not a good item to bring since we do not have any bowls.

The suggested theme for this event is your favorite foods from your family tree (real or imagined!). Let’s see how geographically far-ranging we can be! (I personally would enjoy some lembas. How about you?)

People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies).

Please bring your own beverages.

Please bring your own plates, cups, silverware, and serving utensils. We have spares available if you forget.

Non-veg friends welcome! Children welcome! Sorry, no dogs. No alcohol.

The Chico Vegan Potluck meets on the fourth Saturday of every month at 6:00 pm.

Delicious food and recipes are shared with those who care about their health, the planet, and, most of all, the animals.
