FREE ADMISSION!

The Sacramento Vegetarian Society, as a member organization of the Environmental Council of Sacramento, is once again organizing Sacramento Earth Day’s all-vegan food vendors (list below) and the children’s activity area.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Help us spread the word at our educational booth about how what we eat plays the major role in this year’s Earth Day theme: Environmental and Climate Literacy.

This is one of each year’s most enjoyable volunteer tasks! No experience necessary, just a willingness to spread the word to thousands of visitors about the most sustainable (vegan) steps we can all take for the earth, at a festive community event in beautiful, 20-acre Southside Park.

To sign up, leave a note below or send a message to one of the event hosts.

This year’s food vendors:

Abyssinia

Burly Beverages

Conscious Creamery

Grant High GEO Academy

Mr. Pops

What’s for dinner? Nutrition facts and fallacies

What’s for dinner? Nutrition facts and fallacies

to 8

At the California Guild Hall

3830 U Street, Sacramento, CA (map)

There are three Grange buildings on the property. Come in the rear entrance of the single-story white “house” with a vegetable garden in front.

Celebrate National Nutrition Month with SVS! We’ll share some of our favorite sources of solid, science-based nutrition information (and great recipes!). The good news is, no matter what your motivation for choosing more animal-free, plant-based options in your diet—ethical, environmental, health, spiritual, or esthetic concerns— a diet (and lifestyle) free of animal products is what will get you there.

We’ve selected a few of Dr. Michael Greger’s short, informative, entertaining videos (from nutritionfacts.org) to show after dinner.

Is there a nutrition topic you want to cover? Let us know! As always, there will be plenty of time for discussion and socializing.

Potluck. Bring:

• • a vegan* dish to feed at least six (*plant-based items only—no animal products, e.g., eggs, dairy products, fish, poultry, meat, honey);

• your plate, bowl, cup, eating and serving utensils;

• a list of ingredients/recipe.

Baffled by “vegan”? Don’t know what to fix? We can help. Drop us a line right here or at sacveggie@gmail.com.

Parking: Free, off-street, and lots of it. Just one block from the T Street bike path.

Everyone is welcome. Bring your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.!
