In our biggest event yet, 3 Valley Vegans is part of National Vegetarian Week 2016! The theme is “Celebrate your food, stories and traditions”. With the help of Incredible Edible Todmorden, we are doing this by hosting a free community brunch at Pollination Street, the community green space next to Todmorden market.
Come and test out vegan versions of traditional breakfast and brunch items, plus a few original ones. Make up your own plate combination and tell us what you think of it — you might be surprised! #NVW16
There will also be a children’s activity, where we will provide paper plates for children to draw their favourite brunch item of the day on. These will be attached to a wall and collected as a local art piece.
How can I help?
To make this event a real success we’ll need plenty of help. We need people to set up (from 9 am at least) and to pack away (from 2 pm)
We need people prepared to cook and hand out food, to work with the children, to give out info and generally to engage the public. If any of these tasks sounds like something you’d be able to help with, please email Hilary.
Saker, the bakers in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, are introducing a range of vegan sandwiches in their Hebden Bridge shop on Market Street.
Did you know that all their bread is already suitable for vegans? They also make great vegan croissants fresh each day (Mon-Fri, butter ones at the weekend) and have a vegan cake most days. There is also their range of pasties and sausage rolls, most of which are suitable for vegans, plus lots of vegan-friendly groceries.
On the subject of vegan options, due to popular demand, the Long Causeway Trading Co have introduced a vegan pie to their range of hand-made savory pies! (It has been tasted by 3vv – verdict: delicious)
