Meet Katie Cantrell, founder of the FFAC, and Vegan/Raw Dinner

Katie Cantrell, founder of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC) will talk about the mission of FFAC, and about ways to save the environment, animals, and our health through Food Choices.

She is a UC Berkeley graduate and former president of the Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy. She founded the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition in 2010 to educate people about the ecological and social justice hazards of industrial meat production in the United States. Katie has delivered over 100 presentations on factory farming, and her presentation has been used as a resource by food justice activists across the country. The Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC) is a local non-profit dedicated to empowering consumers to help animals, the environment, and our own health through our daily food choices. We give a holistic overview of the ecological, social justice, and public health impacts of factory farming. It's useful and informative for both omnivores and long-time vegans. In the two years since its inception, FFAC has trained 20 presenters and given over 100 presentations to classes, churches, community organizations, and businesses. FFAC also won free advertising on BART, which brought the message of Meatless Mondays to over 300,000 people per day. For more information, please visit www.ffacoalition.org or on facebook and Twitter @ffacoalition Here is a pic of Katie. Before the presentation, enjoy a fabulous full-course vegan and raw dinner, prepared by a certified Nutrition Consultant, Patricia Allen Koot, NE, NC.  It is all house-made from quality non-GMO and organic ingredients, totally vegan, totally health-supporting, made without eggs, dairy, honey, oil or added sugars. The dinner is all you can eat, as long as the food lasts.  Be sure to RSVP so the chef can plan accordingly.  And bring a container, take some home with you. Location is the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco.  Take the elevator to the first floor, then security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event . A fifteen dollar requested donation covers the all you can eat dinner plus the presentation.  This is only possible because both the Nutritionist and the presenter are donating their time.  Funds go toward facility rental, food, transport and other costs. RSVP to (888)[masked] or email to:  [masked]

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
