Richmond VegFest booth

Earlier this summer, multiple interns and volunteers with The Vegetarian Resource Group volunteered at Richmond Vegfest in Virginia. While there, they were able to distribute resources to the crowd and connect with many individuals who stopped by the booth. As usual, our resources including “Vegetarianism in a Nutshell” handouts, “I Love Animals and Broccoli” coloring books, and copies of the Vegetarian Journal were very popular. The volunteers met with a variety of people at the event who all shared a common interest: a veggie lifestyle. Parents stopped by the booth looking for kid-friendly recipe ideas to prepare for their children. The volunteers were able to direct them to our Parents and Kids Facebook group ( and suggest multiple different kid-friendly cookbooks that they could try. Other individuals stopped by looking for resources on transitioning to vegetarianism and suggestions of vegan meat and cheese alternatives that they could purchase. The interns and volunteers had a great time at this event and loved being able to connect with many different people in a lovely park setting.
