1) OUR DAILY BREAD

By Heather Frances, VRG Intern

For one of my first projects at The Vegetarian Resource Group, I made and donated two Vegan casseroles to Our Daily Bread in Baltimore, Maryland. Another intern, Casey Brown made all three casseroles, while I made two (Brunswick Stew, and Cream Bean and Potato Casserole with Carrots). It only took me a few hours to make them, and I was even able to save a little of each to try for myself. They were delicious and super EASY to make. The ingredients were cheap; the bulk of the ingredients for the casseroles were in cans -- potatoes, beans, and carrots. When it came to bringing the casseroles to Our Daily Bread, we had to make sure they were frozen and tightly sealed with foil.

Brigette, VRG's volunteer coordinator brought us to the facility to drop off the casseroles. We were able to talk to staff there and see inside the kitchen and facility. It was awesome because as soon as we walked in we were immediately thanked at the front desk for donating casseroles, and then even more since we brought a vegetarian option. We went to go see the kitchen, and the first table we saw in their kitchen was a table with a ton of veggie plates. On the veggie plate was Peanut Butter and Jelly, Macaroni and Cheese, Fruit Salad, Half a banana, a small salad, and a Donut. We learned through talking with the staff, that out of 600 people served a day, there seemed to be about a asking for the vegetarian option instead of an option containing meat. This shows how important it is to provide a vegetarian/vegan option because the vegetarian/vegan option doesn’t just not contain meat but also includes more vegetables making it a healthier choice.

So if you’re ever looking for something to do or you want to help with an important task, whip up some vegetarian casseroles and donate them to Our Daily Bread, if in Baltimore, or your local feeding facility wherever you live, It’s a great cause and I’m super confident in knowing these casseroles are going towards people who need it. There definitely needs to be more healthier options for those who are homeless and hungry. This is a great way to give back, while also offering a more sustainable way of eating.

Below is a link attached to a blog post earlier this year about Our Daily Bread, and also directing you to their website with any questions you may have about the program and if you wanted to get involved yourself.

12) THE VRG AT HAMILTON STREET FESTIVAL IN BALTIMORE

By Alicia Hückmann, VRG intern visiting from Germany

On Saturday, July 30, Heather Francis (another intern at The Vegetarian Resource Group) and I set up a booth at the 23rd Hamilton Street Festival (Baltimore) in order to promote vegetarianism and veganism. Among others, we brought brochures and several copies of our journal that we handed out for free, inexpensive books, DVDs, and stickers. Since Hamilton is known to be a neighborhood inhabited by people from diverse backgrounds, it was not very surprising that both children and adults, teenagers and elderly people would come to our booth to take some info material and have a chat with us. While some only stopped to let us know they could never live without meat, others were actually interested in learning more about vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. One lady especially appreciated the amount of free resources we provided, as she is currently making the transition to a meat-free diet. We even met an entire vegetarian family whose eldest daughter was interested in interning at our office.

Apart from the The VRG, Hamilton also welcomed other non-profits like the local Planned Parenthood and the Black Lives Matter group as well as representatives of political parties like the Republican and the Green party. The majority of the booths, however, belonged to artists and vendors advertising and selling their handmade or vintage products like jewelery made from cutlery, recycled t-shirts or grotesque paintings. A broad variety of bands and musicians added to the atmosphere of this fantastic event. Last but not least, there was a vegan hot dog stand thanks to which no vegan had to starve amidst barbecue grills and burger vendors.

Even though the festival was planned to take place between 11am and 7 pm, many participants (including us) decided to leave after 4 hours due to unexpected, very heavy rain. Nevertheless, Hamilton Street Festival was a great experience for both of us and we are already looking forward to having a booth at the Waverly Farmer's Market (Baltimore) on August 13.

To volunteer at future booths, in the office, or other ways, contact Brigette at vrg@vrg.org

13) ORDER PRE-MADE VEGAN MEALS IN THE GREATER BALTIMORE REGION

VRG member Emily Marcovitz offers the following service that involves purchasing pre-made vegan meals in the Baltimore region. Here's the information:

It is time to announce the menu for our 6th summer of Summer Foods! We are very excited! This summer’s schedule will be held mostly on Tuesdays with a couple of Wednesdays thrown in to keep you on your toes. We will be trying an assortment of new dishes as well as bringing back your favorites. Three of the meals will be what we are referring to as “Spreads.” This means that instead of having an entree and side dish, it will have an array of dishes to tantalize your taste buds. These meals will still include a pint of soup and dessert.

We are always thinking about ways to make this program/service better and easier for you. We use containers that are compostable/recyclable. Also, for anyone that is new to Summer Foods, our goal is to serve you delicious food that is as much locally sourced as possible; working with the season and using foods that are fresh and local that week. We try our best to get this right.

All meals are completely VEGAN! This means that they are not made with any animal products including eggs, dairy or honey. If an item says that it is cheesy or creamy, please understand that it has been replaced with (most likely) a cashew cream or sauce.

PLEASE:
  • pass this letter on to friends that you think would enjoy this meal plan
  • find us on Facebook and like us!!
  • continue to let me know what you love; it is the best way to see it come back on a future menu
  • let us know all food allergies

Yours in delicious fresh food!

14) EATING INDIAN AT MANGO GROVE IN COLUMBIA, MARYLAND

By Heather Francis, VRG Intern

There was no wait or pause walking into Mango Grove, in Columbia, Maryland. We were seated right away, and we were then pulled right over to the buffet to start eating.

When told I would be eating at an Indian lunch buffet, I was expecting limited options. Instead I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of dishes that were prepared. As we were being seated, we were asked if we were vegetarian or vegan. Then following the question, we were shown which of the items on the buffet weren’t vegan. There were only two, which left a whole line of options for us and no complaints.

My favorite part was the huge tray of channa masala on the buffet line. My first plate (of two) consisted of tomato rice, broccoli, channa masala, cauliflower curry, mushroom and potato curry, potato pancake, and their vegan version of naan. It took me awhile to get through the first plate, but I scraped off every last bite. I am a personal fan of curry, so for me, it was easy to devour the food in front of me. Adding a second plate was difficult, but I powered through. Even though I was full two bites in, I couldn’t let the food go to waste. The only motive I had moving forward during consuming the meal, was the fact I was eating a plate full of vegetables, along with how delicious it was.

The ambiance of the restaurant added to the perfect lunch, as the staff were superb in providing service. Our glasses never stayed empty, and once we finished a plate, they were cleared right away.

Overall I would have to say, this Indian restaurant integrated into my list of my favorite Indian places to eat. Even though it’s a half an hour away from the city of Baltimore and Washington D.C, it’s a perfect place to check out if you are craving healthy, spicy, and satisfying Indian food. It’s 100% worth the drive. The lunch buffet is available every weekday from 11:30 to 3 p.m, and it’s only 11.95 a person. With the amount of food that is given, it is definitely worth it for a super filling meal.

For more information on this restaurant please visit: [ http://themangogrove.net/index.html ]
