Earthsave Baltimore Vegan Dinner Series will feature a live presentation by registered dietitian Mark Rifkin, on "Come Out of the Dairy-Free Closet." Learn about health problems that are associated with the consumption of cow milk and other dairy products. And learn how to tell friends and family why the most 'American' of foods has lost its appeal. See dinner guest details below.

Dinner Guests may choose to either bring a dish made without animal products (to serve 8) plus $5 donation; pay $12 to enjoy dinner and presentation; or pay $5 for presentation only. We eat first, then make announcements, vote and present awards for our favorite dishes, and then show presentation. Let us know in advance, if possible, if you plan to pay for dinner rather than bring a dish. RSVP by calling 410-252-3043, or emailing Baltimore@Earthsave.org. These monthly dinner events are usually held on the last Saturday at the Learning Center of Your Prescription for Health, 10210 S. Dolfield Rd. in Owings Mills. Please RSVP and join us if you can!
