Our Vegan Table
Sean Casey Animal Rescue's Howl-o-ween
Oct 31, 2009
We did another vegan table, much like our last one, at Sean's Halloween event.
It was great fun!
My son Julian, his girlfriend Pam, and several friends, including nutritionist Nancy Sands, her daughter Brie, and Cynthia King of the Cynthia King Dance Studio in Windsor Terrace, and only maker of exclusively Vegan Ballet Slippers in the world!
We had two large tables, one for literature and one for delicious vegan food from the V-Spot Cafe, my favorite vegan restaurant in Brooklyn, and the one who catered our hospital event, as well as our last Sean Casey vegan table!
The literature table had tons of great pamphlets from various organizations, including Farm Sanctuary's Life Behind Bars, Veg for Life Guide to Veg Living, and other pamphlets, Friends of Animals' Vegan Guides, PCRM's Veg starter Kits, Pamela Rice's "101 Reasons Why I Am Vegetarian," and PETA's Vegetarian Starter Kits, and lots more, including:
How to Win an Argument with a Meat Eater Handouts from Earthsave
Excerpts from the China Study
Summary of UN report "Livestock's Long Shadow"
We also gave out incredible audio CD's by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, of Compassionate Cooks!
We had six large trays of food from the V-Spot, with dishes to appeal to even the hardest-core carnivore: Mock Chicken Nuggets, Buffalo "Wings," Empanadas, and an amazing Quinoa, Kale, Peppers, and Chick Pea Dish!
Many people confided in us that they were ecstatic to see a vegan table at this event.
