VRG Information Is Popular With New Dietitian Program

In July, we ordered handouts from you for our new dietitian program at the University of Chicago. These handouts were well-received by the students; therefore, I would like to order more:

  • 50 Vegetarianism in a Nutshell
  • 50 Vegan Diets in a Nutshell
  • 50 Heart-Healthy Eating Tips

Also, the cookbooks have been checked out from my office on a regular basis. Thanks again for offering such wonderful materials and resources.

VJ Adds to Successful Texas Meatout Dinner

Thank you so much for your donation of Journal issues to our Meatout event! We had over 175 participants, all of whom learned a bit more about the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle. Your publication should help in making that learning permanent!

I hope that we can work together again in the future.

Black Vegetarian Society of Texas
