Give away free food to encourage folks to try veg at Earth Day Raleigh!

Join us in giving away free samples of veg food and encouraging folks pledge to try veg at Raleigh's Earth Day!  We expect it will be similar to our past successful sampling events including OutRaleigh and Durham's Earth Day.  At OutRaleigh last year we gave away 850 free samples of the delish Soy Delight BBQ that even non-veg people love!  We also signed 200 people up for Triangle Meatless Mondays, where they pledged to try eating veg once a week.  There should be a good crowd, and it's great to be a part of a positive process where people realize eating veg can be tasty!

We will have a table from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and could use help any time from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Sign up to come for whatever amount of time you are interested in - even 15 minutes helps!  Please indicate what time you will come and an approximate length of time in your RSVP.  I will send you my cell phone number and any additional info you need.  Laurent and I look forward to seeing you there!

    In case you didn't see my reply to Carolyn below, I just wanted to clarify - there's no need for anyone to bring any food. We only give away samples of a soy BBQ product from Soy Delight on crackers, which we will provide for you. =) Please let me know if you have any questions. We're looking forward to it!
