My Vegan Plate

I am a volunteer with Food Not Bombs New Castle County, which serves vegetarian/vegan meals to homeless and hungry people in Wilmington, Delaware. In the winter, we hand out bagged lunches from cars, and during the rest of the year we hold twice-monthly community meals in a park that homeless people frequent. We receive steady donations from a local food co-op and a chain grocery store that we supplement with produce from members' gardens. Food Not Bombs is an international movement with local independent chapters that aim to feed people with vegan food saved from entering the waste stream.

I have been a VRG member on and off since the 1990s. My new copy of Simply Vegan came with the beautiful "My Vegan Plate." I've been recommending your cookbooks and website to friends and family who have asked me how to increase the amount of vegetables their families eat.

Having seen firsthand the local demand for the sort of information you produce, I think your My Vegan Plate handout would be an invaluable addition to Food Not Bombs New Castle's free literature library. If you could please send about 200 copies, we would put them to very good use in a place that really needs them.

Hello all, In case you did not know, the University at Buffalo dining website has a link to the VRG website. (I work at UB and was pleasantly surprised when I saw this.) See: https://myubcard.com/dining/nutrition
