Garage Sale and Free Vegan BBQ
People’s Community Center, 1602 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Tacoma
Join Cupid’s Landing for the third annual garage sale and free vegan barbeque. This is an incredibly fun and uplifting event. Donated goods are sold on a “name your own price” basis. Furniture, toys, books, clothes, gadgets, decorations, electronics, and more. From noon to 5 p.m. the hosts will be giving away burgers and dogs hot off the grill for free, courtesy of Field Roast, Tofurky, Follow Your Heart, Terra Organics, Franz Bakery and Zevia. At this event there will be a pop-up plant-based food bank. Along with free food hot off the grill, we will be giving away non-perishable plant-based food items, free to anyone.
Do you have items you’d like to donate? Cupid’s Landing is accepting donations of goods to sell as well as non-perishable plant-based foods for the food bank. Cupid’s Landing can take almost anything except: broken/damaged goods, couches, blatant animal products (fur, wool, leather, etc.), cookbooks that call for animal products, and foods that contain animal products. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event support Cupid’s Landing, a farm animal sanctuary and cooperative community in the making.
