BAVeg has been doing vegan outreach monthly at the Vallejo Farmer’s Market’s since October, regularly distributing 500-600 leaflets each time.
In November, we had out first Vegan Food Party (VFP, aka potluck) with approx 20 people. At our second VFP in January, we had approx 25 people, including Vallejo’s own vegan body building Champion, Kenneth Williams.
With such wonderful discussions of future Vallejo vegan business ventures including a food truck and a grocery store, learning that Vallejo’s mayor is vegan, and existing vegan-owned businesses like a yoga studio and bookstore, visions of a Vegan Vallejo are dancing in our hearts.
Q: Why did the activists hand out the leaflets?
A: To raise awareness of factory farming and plant the seeds of a compassionate, healthy and eco-friendly plant-based lifestyle
In the month of January, leafleting at 3 schools and 1 Farmer’s Market, Alyssa, Debbie, Don, and Tammy have distributed 4,251 vegan leaflets. Our outreach continues – 3rd Saturday at the Vallejo Farmer’s Market (monthly), and various dates at Diablo Valley College, Napa Valley College, and Solano Community College.

There’s some wonderful books out there. If you’d like to read more books (and enjoy vegan food during the discussions), then maybe this is the book club for you! Read the rest of this entry »
