Sjaak’s Vegan Chocolate Quiz – Questions

At the Vallejo Earth Day, the BAVeg table focused on water usage and food choices, and distributed information about factory farming, nutrition and recipes, and animal rights.  For fun, participants were asked a randomly selected question related to food and the environment.  As a “thank you” for participating, they were gifted with an organic vegan chocolate bite donated by Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates.  We will have a longer post soon with photographs.  Thank you to our volunteers who made this possible: Debbie, Tonia, Jamie, and Tammy
