The Vegetarian Resource Group Blog

Thank you to Karen Peissinger-Venhaus for tabling for The Vegetarian Resource Group at this festival. Karen said that most everyone was appreciative of the informative and science-based nutrition literature and books we made available at the event. As evidence of this, of the five boxes of handouts and books sent by VRG, only one was left. Karen reported, “I had a great time today meeting and talking with a variety of people; from raw foodists, to young vegetarians, to new and long-time vegans and vegetarians, and to folks just starting out by limiting the number of meat-based meals each week. Most everyone found some information that was pertinent to their veg journey. Some people asked for vegan and/or vegetarian gluten-free information. Two people asked if The Vegetarian Resource Group could make a presentation to their group.” Thank you again to Karen for this outreach.
