South Bay Living Food Community is a local social group based in
Silicon Valley, California. We offer fun activities that encourage
learning, fellowship, and opportunities to enjoy raw, living food.
The Institute for Vibrant Living, a regular sponsor of the SBLFC,
is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to promoting responsible,
vibrant living through education, research, publication, and outreach
activities. The Institute is a primary sponsor of Raw World: International
Festival of Raw Food Enthusiasts, Costa Rica, 2003 (see www.rawworld.org).

also provide links to other raw food sites or online communities
(egroups) rather than attempt to duplicate these impressive information
We have already developed extensive content for this Web site that
we will be releasing in upcoming months. Keep your eyes open.
