I hope you all had a great holiday break. Now it’s time to get back into the swing of things!
Turns out Sunday at 5pm worked best for the time for meetings this term. We will be meeting at the Student Sustainability Center again. The address is 738 SW 15th street.
*This *Sunday is unique and we will be in the Valley Library, Room 1420. The room can hold about 15 people so I would love to have some RSVPs if you will be attending. We will be showing Vegucated.
Please bring snacks. If you have any awesome holiday recipes that you discovered over break, feel free to share them. The movie is about an hour and 15 min long and we will probably start around 5:20 because I do have a few opportunities for getting involved on campus that I will explain a little here. I would also like to brainstorm ideas for this term or next-don’t be shy, anything will be considered will respect.
One event that I need help for is the SDA and OSU’s Healthy Campus Initiative that will be hosting a three day event March 6-8th from 10-2pm. Set up starts at 9:30 each day. Potentially, I need 12 people to cover hour shifts for the 3 days. I can represent for Thursday all day, and you can come hang out with me. I will have a sign up sheet at the meeting. Basically, what you would be doing is telling people why a plant based diet is healthier for them. I can provide pamphlets to hand out. If this sounds like something you could do, but you can’t make it to our meetings just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a time and day that you would be willing to represent VVOSU. Even if you have never spoken to anyone about why eating veggie is better for you, I promise that if you speak from the heart you will reach people.
The other event is a huge one! I will be advertising like mad and showing Earthlings for free at Milam Auditorium in April. If you click on the link provided here you can actually watch the movie for free online. It’s a bit graphic, so be warned. Check out the FB event here.
I have a timeline and have done a bunch of research while writing the proposal last term on how to execute advertising. It looks like it would be good to have at least 4 more people to split up the work. We will have to have meetings with the Food Projects Coordinator for the Student Sustainability Center. They granted us the money for ads! Amazing! It would be work like creating, hanging and handing out flyers. I would also need a few people the night of to help collect email addresses and distribute veg friendly pamphlets. I know that it is still a way off, but I want to have a solid committed group as soon as I can.
