The Vegetarian Resource Group Exhibited at the Western New York VegFest

Posted on September 04, 2017 by The VRG Blog Editor


Thank you to Karen Peissinger, Dorian Dalls, and Matthew Venhaus, who helped table for The Vegetarian Resource Group at the Western New York VegFest. And thank you to Karen for organizing the booth.

Karen reported: There was a constant flow of people at the VRG table from opening to about 4 PM (so much so that my voice became hoarse from talking to everyone!). Several people expressed special interest in vegan pregnancy, either for themselves, for a friend, or for a family member. See:

One person stated that they have found the VRG to be a valuable source of information. This individual said VRG is “reputable not excitable.” This person feels confident and comfortable sending people to the site because the person knows that those people will be able to find the information they need. Many who stopped at the VRG table were pleased to hear that VRG has the involvement of registered dietitians and nutritionists to ensure science-based nutrition information is provided in its publications and on its webpage

Thank you to all our volunteers and dietitians, who help with education and outreach.
