The Plant Based Living Winnipeg (PBLW) Pod hosted their 9th potluck on March 16, 2019. Less than one year after hosting their first event, they already have need for a larger venue! Only 4 hours after announcing the potluck, it was full (max capacity of the room) with more than a dozen people on the waitlist. At this event, they gave members a sneak peek at the new website for PBLW (plantbasedwpg.com) and talked about their plans for the year ahead. Several people from the animal rights community joined the meeting to begin learning about WFPB for health. They talked about how they are all in this together “whether you have come because of the animals, your health, or the environment, it’s important that we form a unified position to influence government policies on food and normalize this way of eating for the public.” Everyone left the meeting very inspired to do more for the cause and also feeling proud to be part of such a forward-thinking organization as PlantPure Communities.
Original Submission received from Michelle Tree, Group Leader of The Plant Based Winnipeg Pod in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on 3/28/19.
