ANNUAL VEG EVENTS:
Meatout - March
Meatout is an international observance helping individuals evolve to a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The purpose is to expose the public to the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet, while promoting the availability and selection alternatives to meat and dairy in mainstream grocery stores, restaurants, and catering operations. Meatout was launched in 1985 and is coordinated each year by FARM, a national nonprofit, public interest organization.
Earth Day ~ Saturday, April 22, 2017
What is the best thing you can do for the environment? Yes, that's right, don't eat animals!
World Vegetarian Day - October 1
Every year on October 1st, World Vegetarian Day kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month (October) with parties, potlucks, presentations, food tasting displays...and lots of friendly discussions on vegism. This site provides suggestions on what you can do and what outreach materials may prove useful to you or your organization.
World Farm Animals Day - October 2
World Farm Animals day, observed on (or around) October 2nd, is a time dedicated to exposing, mourning, and memorializing the needless suffering and slaughter of the more than 55 billion cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other sentient land animals in the world's factory farms and slaughterhouses. It is a time for all to speak out against the atrocities and brutalization of animals raised for meat, eggs, and dairy. The date, October 2nd, honors the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, an outspoken advocate of non-violence towards animals.
Gentle Thanksgiving is an opportunity to encourage friends, family, and neighbors to adopt compassionate alternatives to unnecessarily cruel turkey dinners. We accomplish this by demonstrating the great taste and superior nutrition of gourmet vegan recipes and a variety of festive plant-based foods.
