Vegan Vitality Recap: A Day of Vegan Community

Friday, June 03, 2016

Over 600 people braved the 90-degree weather to join us for our first ever Vegan Vitality event, a celebration of vegan community – thanks to all who came out in support and enjoyed the day!

Attendees packed into demos, dropped-in for community yoga, and connected with animals throughout the day. People learned about veggie fermentation from Jessica Childs of Kombucha Brooklyn and cheese making from Rachel Klein of Miss Rachel’s Pantry. Jasmin Singer of Our Hen House moved the crowd with an emotional and inspirational presentation of her journey to veganism.

Our vendors provided everyone with delicious food from burgers to cannolis and information and products for compassionate, healthful living.

Through ticket, membership, and store sales, we raised over $14K toward our rescue, shelter and outreach work for farm animals.

A huge thank you to all who attended. We look forward to seeing you at our next event, July Jamboree, on July 3rd!
