Meeting Description: Hello everyone! I wanted to let you all know that this year's Great American Meatout will be held at Ferndale High School on Sunday, April 13 from Noon - 5:00 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children under six and VegMichigan members. For discounted admission and schedule details, visit the following site. www.vegmichigan.org
Heading the speaker lineup are Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, celebrated author of The Joy of Vegan Baking, columnist at VegNews Magazine, podcast host and founder of Compassionate Cooks, on debunking the myths of a plant-based diet and being vegan in a non-vegan world. Also, Milton Mills, MD, associate director of preventive medicine for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) in Washington, D.C. who lectures on the impact of meat and dairy consumption on human health and also specializes in race and diet. There will be eight other speakers, plenty of delicious food, cooking demos, exhibitors, fun people, and information.
Please think about bringing a family member or friend who would be interested in learning more about the health, environmental, and ethical reasons to become vegetarian or at least to cut back on meat. Everyone probably knows people who have expressed either an interest in becoming vegetarian, cutting back on meat consumption, or the need to overcome health concerns. The Meatout is a perfect low-pressure opportunity to expose them to the benefits of a plant-based, cruelty-free diet.
Hope to see you there!
