We Need Your Help!
If the best thing any of us can do for animals is to adopt a vegetarian diet, then the second best is to help others to do so. We need your help in promoting vegetarian food tasting to increase the availability of vegetarian options!
The new food-service program, Veg Advantage, will be hosting a free tasting of vegetarian products for food-service professionals at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore, and we need you to extend an invitation to restaurant owners and managers and any contacts you might have at school or hospital cafeterias in the Baltimore area, because hearing it from you (a customer or potential customer in the community) can make all the difference.
Even if you don’t know the managers personally, you can simply go into the restaurant and ask to speak to the manager. If the manager is too busy, just leave a card with information about the Veg Advantage program—which we can provide for you. We are targeting mainstream restaurants and institutions that do not offer many vegetarian options. Let the manager know that you would like to frequent their restaurant and that you hope they will consider adding vegetarian options so you could become a regular.
In Norfolk (the home office) the Veg Advantage has worked with more than a dozen restaurants to add vegetarian items to their menus, including fried soy chicken sandwiches, spaghetti and soy meatballs, burritos with veggie burger crumbles, faux chicken marsala, soft-serve vegan ice cream, soy cheese pizzas, veggie chicken teriyaki, and veggie dogs and burgers.
If you could pass on the following information, it would be a tremendous help in marketing for this event—and it will help you to get the food you want in your local restaurants: This free event will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, in the Pisces Room of the Hyatt Regency Baltimore, 300 Light St. You can visit the VegAdvantage.com Web site for more information about the program. Restaurant owners, managers, and chefs can sign up for the event at VegAdvantage.com.
