Vegetarian Parents and Kids (Veg PAK)
Veg PAK strives to meet on Sunday afternoon each month for children to play and for parents to socialize and share knowledge. We believe it is important to create a sense of vegetarian community for our children. Veg PAK gatherings include kid-friendly vegan snacks, a lending library, and free literature resources. Anyone of any dietary path is always welcome.
Come share your knowledge, experiences, and questions with other veg parents, while the kids have a great time playing and munching on yummy kid-friendly vegan snacks. As always, food and beverage contributions to the meetings are appreciated, but not necessary to join in the fun!
