- R.S.V.P well in advance.
Much of the time, people are more than happy to accommodate special dietary needs nowadays. If you respond to an invitation with plenty of time for the host (or family member) to prepare for your attendance, they will usually ask questions about what you will or won’t eat, and even be open to suggestions on products or ask you to bring something. Your R.S.V.P. is the time to remind your host, friend, or family member that you are vegan and then ask if you should bring your own food. Don’t ask or expect them to provide you with anything. Just ask if you can bring food, and they will typically be happy to either accommodate your needs or try any food that you bring.
