Vegetarians in Motion meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of the month from September through June. 

Please bring a vegetarian dish to pass (no meat, poultry, fish, meat broth or gelatin) that will serve 8-10 people, plus your own plate, silverware and cup.

To be considerate of vegans and people with food allergies, please label dishes if they contain eggs and/or dairy products. Recipes are appreciated.

Admission: $3 for members, $5 for non-members, no charge for children

Meetings are held in the Social Hall of Our Saviors Lutheran Church, 3300 Rural Street, Rockford.
Use the main entrance on Corbridge Lane just across the street from the Church's large parking lot. 

Non-vegetarians are always welcome!
