Word Forest Bring & Share Vegan Lunches

Listen to this article:

In December 2023, our co-founders, Tracey and Simon West started hosting a monthly fundraiser: the Word Forest Bring & Share Vegan Lunch. It was such fun and so successful, it swiftly moved to being a regular event on our calendar. Click here to find out more about the lunches and to check forthcoming dates.  

On the off chance that you might be able to get down to the South Coast sometime soon and that you fancy attending one, please note that it takes place on the first Saturday of the month, every month at Dissenter of Sidmouth, near our East Devon HQ.

The Word Forest Bring & Share Vegan Lunches have brought people together to enjoy a meal, have eco-conversations and share different ideas, as well as raise awareness of the urgent need our planet has for humankind to treat the world with more respect. The lunches create safe spaces to discuss the many positive things we can all do to reduce the impact of our climate emergency.

Entry to the Bring & Share is a suggested £2.50, or £5.00 for a vegan trader who would like to sell their wares (think: a table full of cupcakes). Any money raised over and above the hall hire costs goes straight into Word Forest’s pot to fund the planting of more trees. It’s a Win-Win for our tummies and for the planet too.

We believe our Bring & Share Lunches have such great potential for fundraising up and down the country, that we’ve launched the initiative of hosting one as a national campaign. We’re encouraging our supporters to bring their communities together for a convivial gathering, like the one in Sidmouth and to share mouthwatering, planet-friendly food. 

There is something quite profound about sitting and sharing a meal, isn’t there. It certainly fosters more open communication and understanding about each other and our world. It also creates a warm feeling of fellowship and connectivity and that’s something we can all benefit from too.

If you’re interested in hosting an event for Word Forest, we’ve got a whole host (excuse the pun) of resources available to guide you through the process. Our Step by Step Guide will walk you through it all. You can see this below (click on the picture to open it) and much more besides on our page dedicated to the Word Forest Bring & Share Vegan Lunches.

…and finally, tagging nicely onto this, we thought you might also be delighted to hear we launched a Celebrity Inspired Vegan Cookbook earlier this week! It’s free and it’s all yours – just click here.

By embracing more plant based food from produce that is in season and grown locally (ideally organically) we can make even bigger reductions to our carbon and water footprints. We hope we’ve tempted you to host an event for us, so you can enjoy all the joy that comes with it!
