Calling all pre-vegans!
Have you been thinking about going vegan but have been on the fence for a while? We have a very special opportunity for you and we hope it will help you get off the fence and take the plunge.
Chicken Run Rescue has generously agreed to allow us to come and tour their rescue facility and sanctuary, and to allow people to meet some of the hens who were previously being exploited for their eggs, ended up homeless because they were roosters and were deemed worthless by people who only wanted hens for egg-laying purposes, and birds who were being kept by people who intended to kill and eat them before they were rescued.
Having the opportunity to spend some time with these individuals and getting a chance to know them a little bit may be the inspiration you've been looking for to finally go vegan - all the way.
* There is limited room for this meetup and our meetup group is asking for donations from visitors to help with the costs of running the meetup and will be donating a portion of the donations to CRR so they can buy produce for the birds. No one will be turned away due to inability to pay, and the donation is a suggested amount, we always appreciate more, of course.
* Bringing friends and family who are not yet vegan is an option if you are already vegan, but we ask that you bring someone with you who is NOT so we can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to have the birds speak for themselves.
* Please bring treats and snacks for the birds! They enjoy fruit (especially melons!), cooked spaghetti, greens, raisins, cucumbers, cooked corn on the cob, rice, and whole wheat bread.
