Fresh Fruit Potluck San Diego Fruitarians Lena 1024

Let's have some nice time sharing a meal of fresh fruit - please bring your favorites, ready to eat, and we will enjoy them together during a conversation.

In 2018, I started hosting fruit potlucks - fruitlucks - in Oceanside, California on Sundays.
In 2020, we will meet on every first Friday at five (5) pm.

To Attend

Please follow these necessary steps:
  1. Confirm that you are coming before the day of the event.
    If it is your first time, please text me your name and a short introduction, and I will send you the exact address by the morning of the event day:
    • 323-686-1771
  2. Bring fruit - fresh, clean, and ready to serve, your favorite or seasonal.

My place is to the North of the airport on 76, on a hill (see the map below).

How We Do It:

  • We place food in one place and load our plates with what we like.
  • We use porcelain plates and silverware - no need to bring plastic one-time use items.
  • We can sit in a circle at a large table in a room, and if more people want to come, we can also sit by a coffee table the the the bar stand. Once we gathered outside by the garden on picnic blankets.

Answers to Already Asked Questions:

  • What if I do not want fresh fruits or cannot get any?
    Bring seeds, vegan salads, or fruit drinks, juices, or tea or coffee. Or bring fruits that others would likely enjoy.
  • Do I need to bring drinks?
    Only if you want to bring something special. We will have filtered water and hibiscus tea.
  • What kind of fruits should I bring?
    Any kind, sweat or non-sweet, but tasty, ripe, and undamaged.
  • How much fruit should I bring?
    Enough to satiate 1-2 people. For example, 2 pounds of grapes, or 6 large apples, or a melon.
  • Will I need to take my shoes off?
  • How about parking?
    There is plenty of street parking in the court and on the crossing street.
  • Why only fruit?
    1. Fruits are one of the most environmentally friendly, ethical, healthy, and universal foods.
    2. Fruits are easy, no cooking, no special ingredients that someone might not like.
    3. Nobody else in my area organizes fruitarian events, the are rare everywhere, and as a long-term fruitarian I want to do something about it. Even vegan, vegetarian or plant-based gatherings are hard to find.
    4. People should eat more fresh fruits and vegetables (including non-sweet fruits like tomatoes, peppers, squash, eggplant, or cucumbers) to live longer and healthier.
    5. A fresh fruit meal might become an example to form a nice habit: once a month, a week, or even daily fruit only lunch or dinner.
    6. It is worth my effort to organize a fruitluck privately because restaurants rarely offer fruit dishes.
    7. I want to try to give good people a friendly environment to find friends - without advertisement, money pressure, distractions, but with a pleasant view on a tiny orchard.
