On Sunday, October 19th, in conjunction with the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, The Vegetarian Resource Group hosted a vegan dinner in Atlanta, Georgia catered by Soul Vegetarian Restaurant. Thanks to all involved, the event was a huge success!

Thank you so much to volunteer Kayellen Umeakunne who did so much work to create a beautiful experience for attendees at the The Vegetarian Resource Group vegan dinner in Atlanta, held at Morehouse Medical School. Kay created a room to be inviting and reflect the school’s African American heritage. Kay is Research Bionutritionist/Bionutrition Core Manager a the Morehouse School of Medicine Clinical Research Center. In addition to helping us with the dinner, that week she also participated in the National Associaton of Bionutritionists First Annual Nutrition Clinic, hosted their tour of the Morehouse Bionutrition Core, and presented at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Meeting on “Food Fermentation: Connecting Ancient Traditions with Science.”

Staff of Soul Vegetarian serve up a delicious meal of Sweet Potatoes, Tender Greens, Green Beans, Tofu Lasagna, and Southern Style Baked BBQ.
