1) WHY DO PEOPLE EAT VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN MEALS WHEN EATING OUT? THE VEGETARIAN RESOURCE GROUP ASKS IN A 2016 NATIONAL POLL CONDUCTED BY HARRIS POLL

The Vegetarian Resource Group Asks in a 2016 National Poll Conducted by Harris Poll

The Vegetarian Resource Group commissioned Harris Poll to conduct a nationally representative online poll of 2,015 adults aged 18 and over. First We asked: Which of the following, if any, best describes your eating behavior?

  • I never eat meat, fish, seafood, poultry, dairy, or eggs.
  • I never eat meat, fish, seafood, or poultry.
  • I never eat meat, fish, seafood, poultry, dairy, or eggs when eating out or getting takeout, but eat one or more of these foods at home.
  • I never eat meat, fish, seafood, or poultry when eating out or getting takeout, but eat one or more of these foods at home.
  • When eating out or getting takeout, I sometimes eat meals without meat, fish, poultry, dairy, or eggs.
  • When eating out or getting takeout, I sometimes eat meals without meat, fish, or poultry.
  • None of these.

We considered those that never eat meat, fish, seafood or poultry; plus those that never eat meat, fish, seafood, poultry, dairy, or eggs, as vegetarian. We classified that second category of vegetarians who don't eat dairy or eggs also as vegan.

Thirty seven percent of the population always or sometimes eats vegetarian meals when eating out. About three percent of the population is vegetarian (including vegans) all the time, and about five percent always eat vegetarian or vegan meals when eating out.

3) BOOTH AT SEED SCHOOL HEALTH FAIR IN BALTIMORE

The Vegetarian Resource Group had a booth at the Seed School health fair in Baltimore. Interestingly, two staff members were vegan, and others were interested in making changes in their diets for themselves, so were very happy to receive materials.

Eligibility Criteria

The SEED School of Maryland is a single-grade entry school, meaning it only accepts applications for rising 6th grade students who are Maryland residents. The student must be experiencing academic and environmental challenges that may prevent him/her from succeeding in high school and college. Additionally, the student must demonstrate at least two of the following characteristics:

  • A record of suspensions, office referrals or chronic truancy.

  • He/she comes from a single- or no-parent household.

8) VEGETARIAN RESOURCE GROUP INTERNSHIP BY HANA TAKEMOTO

By Hana Takemoto

My time at The Vegetarian Resource Group has been life-changing. Coming from a Japanese family in which little thought was given towards meat and fish-centric meals and where my views on animal rights and eating habits have been grudgingly permitted, an environment like VRG where people, including fellow interns, spend their days working towards educating and helping people maintain a vegan lifestyle has been incredibly refreshing, unique, and educational. Before coming to VRG, I had never met another vegan, and now, I have a long list of contacts to get in touch with after my internship if I am in need of any advice about veganism.

I’ve been a high school intern for VRG since the beginning of the school year, and as part of Atholton High School’s Gifted and Talented Intern/Mentor class, I’ve spent an average of four hours a week as an intern for VRG. Since starting, I’ve been lucky to try and review all sorts of different vegan foods, from seaweed and seitan to Ben & Jerry’s non-dairy ice cream. I’ve also added updates to VRG’s online restaurant guide and reviewed restaurants that I’ve visited, such as Blind Faith Cafe in Evanston, Illinois. Along the way, I’ve attended events including the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore and the Benefit Day at Great Sage in Clarksville, Maryland, places that have offered me opportunities to meet other people interested in veganism and to explore new areas of interest. In addition, with the help of everyone at VRG, I’ve been working on investigating the benefits and feasibility of offering vegan food options on Atholton High School’s lunch menu, a project that has involved learning about Federal guidelines, interviewing food service staff, and distributing surveys. More recently, I’ve also had the opportunity to read essays that high school students submitted for VRG’s High School Senior Scholarship Contest, an inspiring and uplifting task that I hope I can continue for the years following the end of my internship here at VRG.

Since coming to this internship, I can always appreciate the efforts VRG co-directors Charles and Debra have taken to assign me projects that are engaging and suitable to my interests, an accommodation that is unique for internships. Sure, it would be easy to search “how to be vegan” into an internet search bar, but nothing can come close to spending a school year at an internship where I am surrounded by people who have given me a great experience by doing what they do best: helping through education. As my time at VRG is nearing a close, I can say with confidence that VRG has imparted to me lasting lessons about hard work, dedication, and passion in the name of veganism.

10) VEGETARIAN RESOURCE GROUP AT GREEN FESTIVAL BY CASEY BROWN

By Casey Brown

The other weekend I had the opportunity to volunteer with The Vegetarian Resource Group at Green Festival in Washington, DC. Green Festival is a sustainability event that showcases innovative brands and organizations so they can promote their products and services.

It was a unique experience that enabled the other VRG staff and me to interact with a wide variety of people and educate them on vegan lifestyles. During the event we met with a man who has been vegetarian since the 1960s and many others who hadn’t yet made the transition, but were interested in learning more. People expressed their concerns about not knowing what kinds of meals to make, not knowing where to begin, or simply not understanding all of the benefits behind the lifestyle. We were able to share a variety of resources with them including pamphlets, recipe books, and restaurant guides, as well as our own personal experiences to help answer their questions. Over the weekend we handed out over 1,000 copies of our Vegetarian Journal, which includes recipes, cooking tips, and other nutrition information. Our “Vegetarianism in a Nutshell” pamphlet and “My Vegan Plate” really helped people to understand the basics of a vegan diet as well. Everyone was appreciative for these resources, and they were enthusiastic about trying some new vegetarian meals. We also met multiple people who were already vegan and were hoping to get some resources and recipe ideas to share with their friends to help inspire them to consider the lifestyle.

It was an exciting opportunity to encourage everyone to take their next steps, whether they were planning to incorporate more plant-based meals into their lifestyle, trying to eat healthier, or adopting a fully vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.

Overall, it was a great experience and I was honored to be able to spend the weekend surrounded by so many motivated and inspiring people that were so passionate about their health and the environment
