FAQ:
What is the cost?
Free! There is no charge for admission AND there is no charge for food; however, please show your respect for our planet and do not waste food. Only take what you can eat.

Do I need a ticket?
No, however, please RSVP via the Dharma Jewel website to let us know you are coming. Otherwise we may run out of food!

Is parking free?
Yes, you can park directly at Dharma Jewel Monastery. Overflow parking across the street at St Bede's Episcopal Church.

Are there vegan options?
Yes, we love vegans, and many dishes should be vegan. Any items that contain dairy will be specially marked. All food we serve should be free of meat, seafood, eggs, garlic, onion, chives, leek, and scallions.

I have a food allergy. Can you accommodate?
We will try to mark those dishes with a "Contains Nuts" label; however we make no guarantee of food allergens or cross-contamination. We make no guarantees for any food and take no responsibility or liability for any and all activities.

Do you have any recipes?
We recommend the cookbook "Wok Wisely" (available on Amazon or through Buddhist Text Translation Society at www.buddhisttexts.org). Also, check out some Chinese vegetarian cuisine ideas at http://buddhagate.org/bgm_recipes/Vegetarian/recipes/English.html
