Bits and bites: Food demo and potluck


Eat your veggies

Join the Brattleboro Food Co-op for a PlantPure (whole food plant-based) demo followed by a potluck on Thursday.

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Marilyn Chiarello, of A Taste of Light, will share several oil-free salad dressings for you to try, and demonstrate how to make "Bettah Feta," a non-dairy Feta cheese and dressing for your next Greek salad.

Please bring a fully plant-based dish to share (no meat, fish, dairy, eggs or honey), along with an ingredient list, noting any possible allergens such as nuts or gluten. If possible, bring your own place setting to generate less waste.

This is a free event, but pre-registration required.

To register, contact Shareholder Services, at 802-246-2821 or
