The Beauty of a Supportive Community

When I moved 11 years ago  to where I now live, I had been a vegetarian for about 4 years.  It gets a little lonely being the only one I know with such seemingly different eating habits, so I decided to find some vegetarian folks to gather with periodically and enjoy a variety of home prepared delicious meatless food. It was a good thing to do, and that group, though changed some in membership over the last 10 years, still meets montly.
  It was only natural then, when, in late 2006 I made the leap into avery high raw and living cuisine, to try the same approach to gather some people around me with whom I could share food, information, and, in general, the company of others attempting to eat in a very healthy, earth-sustaining, animal friendly way. 
It worked!  Next month our Columbia Raw Food Feasters Meetup Group will be 3 years old.  We now enjoy a membership of more than 125 people, between 25 and 50 of whom show up every month for a casual and delicious raw food potluck.  Every month it gives me a real boost to be part of this vibrant, energetic, healthy, life-seeking community.  I am most grateful for their enthusiasm, their good company, and their exquisite, nourishing food!!  For more information, or to join us, go to  We’ll be watching for you!
