Oak Park Progressive Women & Sugar Beet Schoolhouse present:

Family Night: A night of family fun to benefit the All Ages/All Abilities Garden

Your family will have a great time making The Ultimate Vegan Burger - it's a fun and hands-on cooking experience for all. You'll be grating, chopping and roasting veggies, grains and beans to make a delicious vegan burger! No dairy, tree nuts or meat will be used, however, sesame and gluten is part of the recipe.

The ULTIMATE VEGAN BURGER is so good!

After we cook we will sit down to a delicious meal and learn more about how choosing vegan and vegetarian foods help support a more sustainable planet.

All proceeds from the evening help fund our All Ages/ All Abilities Garden that benefits participants at Oak Leyden, WSSRA and Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry. We are exploring the many benefits of growing food at our All Ages/ All Abilities Garden on the grounds of Cheney Mansion in Oak Park. Young adults with disabilities, senior citizens and other volunteers are working together to grow vegetables that are harvested and donated to the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry and, to date, we have donated over 1800 lbs of fresh food! Growing food in a community garden connects us with nature, with each other and our participants enjoy the experience of giving back to our local food pantry.
