Last November, Glenhuntly Church held it’s very own “Aussie” version of the celebrated “Dinner with the Doctor” program. Twenty two participants – eighteen from the community – attended the dinner and listened to Glenhuntly Church’s own Dr. David Rankin speak on the benefits to the heart and overall health and wellbeing of a plant-based diet.
Banquet-style courses of vegan nibbles, mains and desserts – ably prepared by Alex Bolek and his daughter Hilary – were served to each table by a team of helpers during the talk. There was opportunity for participants to ask questions and discuss issues among themselves.
A church volunteer was seated at each table to help get conversation flowing and let participants know just what a friendly, fun bunch we all are!
Everyone received a gift pack of goodies, dinner recipes and promotions of other upcoming events. One attendee also received Sue Radd’s cook book: Food as Medicine.
Participant verdict – The night was great!
