First Meeting

Here are the minutes from our first meeting:
-email Bridget (nutritionist for Brown Dining Services)
-organize list of favorite foods (so we can have meal suggestions for the cafeteria)
-start collecting info for booklets--> eventually will be organized into a sort of How To guide on being veg*n on mealplan
-veal parmesan (once we've developed a relationship with BDS we should ask them to stop serving veal)

-sponsors? (Whole Foods, etc)
-events? (movies: Fast Food Nation, etc)
-table slips/publicity (to advertise our next meeting)
-Next meeting time: Friday, February 23, 5:00-6:00pm at (EDIT: Wilson 305)
So, the first thing we'd like to do is make a little booklet that we could put next to the ingredients book at the Ratty, it would be a guide to what's veg*n there. We also want to send Bridget, the nutritionist, suggestions of veg*n meals or products they could serve. If you have any favorite meals/suggestions, send them to Kate: kaitlin_goldstein@brown.edu. Some ideas we had for future events were bake sales, showing a movie, and a Vegetarian Day at the Ratty where members of the club could help cook veg food, and maybe get Whole Foods and Garden Grille to sponsor it.

Hi everyone, I've gotten a couple of table banners and literature from vegan outreach to do some tabling/leafleting during move-in weekend.

Hi everyone, I've gotten a couple of table banners and literature from vegan outreach to do some tabling/leafleting during move-in weekend. I've also reserved a table for us at the activities orientation with electricity to we can run a video (I'm thinking "meet your meat").

If anyone is available to help, please send me an email at tisa_smith@brown.edu or call me at 203-906-6214.

See you soon!
