We'll also show a few film clips feature Stay Diverse promoting plant-based eating. Also joining us will be Kelli Hawthorne from the Baylor "Veggie Kids" Nutrition Study to speak about the first of its kind study on veg youth nutrition.

All ages and newcomers are welcome to attend!

There is even a kids play area for young children, plus plenty of vegan literature and starter guides for the veg-curious.

Please remember to bring a vegan dish to share with the group! These events are always vegan, so please only vegan or raw vegan foods (no animal-derived ingredients). If you have questions on ingredients, feel free to contact us. Those not bringing food will be asked to make a donation. Help keep these events earth-friendly by bringing your own reusable dinnerware, plates & cups.

This is a great way to meet up with Vegan Society of PEACE each month and learn about volunteer opportunities, upcoming events and outreach!

    Excellent. Thank you, everyone, for your interesting and enjoyable company, and the delicious food.
    Thanks Alexander and Rocko of STAY DIVERSE for the food demo (Smoothie 101) and their always entertaining musical performance, reminding us of the "So many reason to be a vegan."
    Thanks to Keli Hawthorne for her informative presentation on Baylor College of Medicine's Children's Nutrition Research Center "Veggie Kids Study," the purpose of which is to determine how well vegan and vegetarian children ages 4-10 absorb iron. The study is ongoing; interested vegans/vegetarians should contact Keli via email: [masked].
    Thank you VSOP for organizing this event, and the generous door prizes. Looking frward to next month's event.
