    1. Vegetarian Families Group
      10:00 am – 12:00 pm
      On the first Monday of the school holidays, so that hopefully most of our veg families will still be in Auckland before getting booked up or going away later in the holidays.
      Please bring a plate of food to share if you can. As we have a lot of vegan families in this group, a vegan plate would be great, though a vegetarian plate is fine too – perhaps just label whatever you bring, accordingly. (Ideas if vegan food is tricky for you:  Hummus and plain rice crackers/corn thins or carrot sticks, fruit, nuts, vegan chocolate (eg whittakers dark choc), oreos, plain popcorn, plain chips, Orgran biccies, home baking with soy/rice milk and egg substitute…)
      Please contact Stephanie Mansell by email at stephanie@animal doctors.co.nz to RSVP and for more information and address details.
