Jan. 24th, 6-8 pm, vegan potluck, in Towson, and live presentation by Mark Rifkin, RD of "Slice Your Food Bill". Healthy plant-based diets don’t have to be expensive. An average healthy person eating plant-based should be able to spend less than $180-$200 per month. Registered Dietitian Mark Rifkin will help us to ignore clever marketing strategies and learn to avoid overspending; identify which foods give us the most for our money; understand how we can enjoy summer fruit all year round; pinpoint key ways to stop wasting food; and learn how to measure our success. Please RSVP and Join us!

Mark Rifkin is a Registered Dietitian and long term vegan who focuses on whole food, plant-based nutrition for prevention and treatment of chronic illness. Mark enjoys educating and supporting vegetarians, vegans, and all those who would like to eat for optimal nutrition.

DINNER GUESTS may choose to either bring a dish made without animal products (to serve 8) plus $5 (members pay just $2) donation; pay $15 (members pay just $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. Meetings held at Towson Presbyterian Church, 400 W Chesapeake Ave. Towson, MD, 21204. DIRECTIONS and PARKING: http://www.towsonpres.org/index.php/about-tpc/map-directions. Please RSVP and join us!
