I have very exciting news for you...a vegan charity group called 'Cooks for Compassion' has recently been formed in Amherst, MA. Our kickoff event will be a vegan charity dinner for Farm Sanctuary on October 25th at the Cafe Evolution in Florence, MA. 100% of all proceeds from this event will be going to Farm Sanctuary (http://www.farmsanctuary.org/). Please visit our website at http://cooksforcompassion.com/ for more information or to buy tickets.
Alice Cherng, the group's founder, is a professional vegan chef (http://www.harmonickitchen.com/). So get ready for some fabulous food. There will also be live music and a raffle.
Worcester Vegan Meetup & Eatup is a way to connect with other vegans (and aspiring vegans) in central MA. You can join up to check out local veg restaurants, show off your culinary skills at a vegan potluck, or participate in pro-veg leafleting and activism with other like-minded folks.Thinking of going veg but not there yet? Come get some advice, tasty grub & moral support! Make new friends & share vegan recipes!
We have joined forces with VegWorcester, a not-for-profit, community organization that advocates vegetarian living in Central Massachusetts. Among the many things VegWorcester members and volunteers take part in, VegWorcester also hosts the Worcester VegFest and produces the Worcester Veg-Dining Guide!
The Worcester Vegan Meetup & Eatup group will network with VegWorcester and local Meetup.com groups to help get the word out about educational and activism events, festivals, potlucks, parties and other pro-veg outings!
