Veg Outreach Booths: Spring 2014

Posted on March 31, 2014 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor

Who says you can’t be in more than one place at one time? Just this past weekend, VRG held booths in New York City at the NYC Veggie Pride Parade, Hadley, MA at Valley VegFest and Fairfax, VA at the National Capital Area Bake Show! Volunteers handed out hundreds of pieces of veg literature and even performed a vegan baking demo!

Of course, without all of our wonderful volunteers, none of these outreach efforts would have been possible! We would like to thank Reed Mangels, Whitney Blomquist, Natalie Evans, Becca Kaplan and Amanda Riley so much for their incredible work and dedication as well as all of those who came out to support us. We are extremely grateful to have such an amazing team here at VRG.
