VSDC Women’s Monthly Weekday Evening Potluck Pod Kickoff Meeting in Bethesda

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Veg Society of DC is launching a new program based on member feedback. **To participate, note the next steps below.**

We are organizing **a group of women to meet monthly for a potluck dinner at group members’ homes**. Each month, the pod will enjoy a meal together and discuss the challenges and joys of a vegan lifestyle. We will share resources and develop meaningful relationships and a support system to navigate the challenges of veganism and life. The pod will provide connections, new friendships, and mutual support. The pod is intended to be a place to share and learn from each other.

**This is for you if you:**

* Want to develop meaningful friendships with other vegan and vegan-aspiring women.
* Will commit to a monthly meeting on a weekday evening for one year. Of course, we know you might miss one or two meetings over the year for travel or work commitments.
* Will prepare (or purchase) a vegan dish for each meeting and share the recipe.
* Will consider hosting a meeting at your residence. **We recognize this may not be possible for all group participants.**
* Live within seven miles of downtown Bethesda. We are limiting it geographically to reflect the realities of rush-hour travel.
* Are or are willing to become a VSDC member—just $25 a year or less for seniors, students, and low-income individuals – by October 1. The pods are a member benefit.

**Next steps**

1. **[Complete the Pod Participant Form](https://forms.gle/fNx3fqL8mUMiv7Pu8)**.
2. Attend the initial planning meeting on September 10 at Rooted3. We will get to know one another at this meeting, discuss our hopes for the group, and set a meeting schedule.
3. Join VSDC at http://www.vedc.org before October 1!

**Are you interested in joining a Pod, but is this Pod not a match?**
VSDC will launch pods in other locations and for other constituencies if we have a leader for the group. If you want to be a pod leader, please write to wendy@vsdc.org and let us know what you have in mind.
