Local & Organic Meatless Potluck!

The Problem

We hope to increase health, promote local & organic produce and restaurants who serve these foods, and have fun! We will learn more about our UNESCO City of Gastronomy (Tucson), and the many special ingredients here like cactus, chilies and mesquite honey and ancient foods. As we share our food and recipes, we will also learn about other cultures that heavily rely on vegetarian dishes. We hope to raise awareness about why raising/processing meat on a large scale is harmful to our environment and our bodies, and that there are many delicious options for meatless menus to add to your diet.

Our Plan

With our friends, we will host a vegetarian potluck to share information about how & why adding meatless meals to your diet increases good health. We will have these categories: appetizers, main entrees and desserts. We will swap recipes and tell our friends to prepare these at home. We will talk about the importance of organic produce, and why buying local is good for our bodies and local economy. As we discuss vegetarian foods from other parts of the world, we will learn about other cultures. We will have fun with our friends and learn how to prepare new foods!
