Veg Sample Giveaway at Holiday Pet Festival!

We are hosting a booth at the largest companion-animal holiday event in the valley, the 4th Annual Holiday Pet Festival.

We'll be offering scrumptious complimentary samples from Green and Nami and informative booklets, helpful recipe guides, and youth-inspired educational comics. This Fest is a perfect welcoming setting to introduce a positive veg message! 

Kirby and Cindy at the Fest - volunteers rock!

Do you have a bit of extra time for FUN volunteering at our booth? You'll be distributing delicious food samples and giving out booklets. BONUS ― do some inspired holiday shopping at this glorious indoor fest before & after your shift. So many wonderful gift-giving ideas to explore.

    It was simply fantastic to host this booth with so many kind-hearted, selfless people - you did a GREAT job! We could not have pulled this off if it weren't for your help. You were super friendly to the tons of people who visited our booth, and this is so important. An approachable and welcoming veg conversation makes a positive impact, so we thank you for this. From the members who met us early to unpack/set-up and then moved right into offering delicious samples, to everyone who assisted during the crazy busy times, and all who stayed as the Fest slowed down and helped pack up/transport equipment to the cars - we are grateful to every one of you. A huge thank you to generous ACME for creating our signs. And thank you to award-winning sponsor Green for making huge batches of mild buffalo wings with refreshing cucumber ranch dressing and award-winning BBQ "chicken" skewers; and to award-winning Nami for the delicately moist blueberry fritters and heavenly chocolate chip cookies!

    • Veronica

      Hello Lynn! Although we'd love to have Zeke come along, we just want you to be aware that we will be doing a lot of food handling so it may be hard to watch him at the same time. Thank you again for volunteering!
