Dunedin/Otepoti Vegan Society
Monthly Vegan Potluck Meals
From February to November each year we hold informal social get-togethers in the form of vegan potluck lunches. They are held on the second Sunday of the month, from 12pm-2:00pm, in 'The Apartment' at 35 Dowling Street in the inner city. (* See Map Below)
The aim of these gatherings is to enjoy delicious vegan food with like-minded people in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is welcome at our potlucks; vegans and non-vegans alike: just as long as you are interested in and/or supportive of veganism, and any food you bring along is vegan. So feel free to invite your friends and family. Children are most welcome too.
Please bring a vegan dish to share. If you’re unsure what to bring, you can check out some of these websites for some very easy, affordable vegan recipes...

There are plenty of other good websites too. But vegan food doesn't have to be fancy. It can be as simple as tossing together a fresh fruit salad, a green salad, or indeed any type of salad, or bringing a bowl of hummus, with chips or a platter of crunchy vegetables for dipping.
The shared food is what makes these events great, so please bring a dish if you can. But if you're genuinely unable to, you can still come along. Your company is what's important.
Note: Please bring a gold coin to help cover the cost of hiring the venue, plus our other expenses such as tea, coffee, plant milks, etc.
See you there!
Note 1: Veganism is a social justice movement which has respect for non-human animals at it's core. We also acknowledge the environmental and human rights benefits of veganism, and the health benefits of a plant-based diet. As much as is possible and practicable, vegans avoid ALL forms of animal exploitation. This includes avoiding all animal-derived foods, and foods which contain these things as ingredients: even in small quantities. That includes foods derived from organic, free range, or wild animals. To find out more about veganism and what foods are and aren't vegan, check out the 'About Veganism' page on our website.
Note 2: If you have any allergies or special dietary requirements (other than being vegan) please let one of the DŌVeS organisers know. You can use the Contact Page on our website, message us via our Facebook page, or just chat to us on the day. DŌVeS is always more than happy to help people identify which dishes are suited to your needs, and which ones aren't.
