This Week in NJ


NJveg will be hosting a Gourmet Dinner this Wednesday. Join them in Mt. Holly for a 4 course meal prepared by Culinary Students of Rowan College. Space is limited, as there was a small class enrollment this semester, so the event sold out quick! To keep up with future NJveg events (including their next dinner with the Culinary Students of Rowan College), sign up for their email list here. Discounts are given to their events for members, so if you are not a member, you can find more information and sign up on their website.

A spaghetti dinner fundraiser will be held on Friday to benefit the Sartama Animal Rescue. It will take place between 6p-9p on Friday at the Lake Pine Colony Club in Medford.

Our own IttyBitty Vegan (Janet) will be celebrating her birthday, Vegan in NJ style with a Friday night dinner meetup (private event for the Vegan in NJ Facebook group - must be a member to view) at Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant in Montclair. Gluten free options are available with notice and we ask that you RSVP here.

Ethos Farm will be hosting world renowned speaker, Joel Fuhrman, M.D. on Saturday, the 11th. The presentation topic will be: Advances in Nutritional Science To Live Healthfully Until 100. Dr. Fuhrman is a board-certified family physician, best-selling author and nutritional researcher, who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional methods. The day's events will end with a potluck lunch. More information and registration can be found here, however it is currently sold out. You can see future events by visiting the Ethos Farm website.

There will be a vegan outreach at Godek Farms in Marlboro on Saturday afternoon. The goal is to let the Godek family know it’s time to find another “family business” without harming and exploiting innocent beings. Signs and leaflets will be provided, and a post-protest meal will be taking place at Vegan Tree.

NJveg will also be hosting a lunch meetup Saturday at Eureka (Plant Based Foods) in Philipsburg. The menu can be found here and all are welcome!
