We’d also like to thank the individuals, organizations and businesses for donating prizes, and are looking for prizes for the 2005-2006 season. Please contact me if you’re interested in donating a prize to support veg advocacy and Bay Area Vegetarians in the SF Bay Area.

Given the success and interest in the ARP program, we are continuing it! To earn points in the ARP for 2005-2006, participate in advocacy events (they’re listed on the event calendar with their point value) or think about organizing an event (worth even more points)
