The Vegetarian Resource Group hosted a booth at the Waverly Farmer’s Market in Baltimore. We had several meat-eaters approach us and pick up materials for their son or daughter. People had lots of questions for us because they had a family member or friend who is vegetarian. We noticed several people talk about the challenges of having food allergies, and referred them to our website for nut-free and gluten-free vegan meal plans. A local middle school teacher grabbed several coloring books and “Vegetarian Nutrition for Teenagers” brochures for her classroom. Other vendors approached our booth and thanked us for being there, because they were vegetarian and appreciated the outreach.

Hosting booths is rewarding because we have the opportunity to encourage people to explore vegetarianism/veganism by providing resources to make it easier.
