Hey, Chicagoland! We invite you to join our Meetup – https://www.meetup.com/Chicagoland-Plant-Based-Nutrition-Movement/ and feel free to join in on any events that are of interest to you! The events on our Meetup Calendar are very assorted and include such things as: Educational/support type groups (most are “voluntary potlucks” where participants are encouraged to bring a whole food plant-based no oil dish to pass. Bringing a dish is generally not required, but serves to both give participants some “practice” at preparing a WFPB-NO dish, but also to introduce a variety of delicious foods to other participants Cooking Classes Educational speakers Picnics/potlucks Documentary film screenings Health immersions …and more While most of the events on our Meetup Calendar are PBNM.org events, we are also pleased to help expose our members to events hosted by others, but which are aligned with our specific objective, which is, of course, to provide our members with as much useful information and as many resources as possible about the power of a whole food plant-based dietary pattern to promote optimal health. Such events will indicate who is actually conducting the event.
