We gave away thousands of pieces of literature
this month, planting the seeds of compassion & good
health far and wide at two fairs in San Francisco,
the Haight Street Fair and Pride. It was our
2nd year at Haight, and our 3rd year at Pride.
It was nice to receive even more feedback on
going veg from people who had visited our booth
A huge thank you to our veggie-powered volunteer

A big thank you to Sun Flour Baking for donating
mini vegan cookie samples for Pride, to Farm
Santuary, PETA, and Vegan Outreach for helping
with literature for both events, and to Chuck
B, Frank C, Gabe Q, George G, Mark H, Naomi S,
Nicolas A, Rebecca Y and Stephanie V whose financial
support made our presence at Pride possible.
As you know, Bay Area Vegetarians was a local
sponsor for the recent SF screening of McLibel.
This true life story of how two activists stood
up and told the truth about McDonald's is not
to be missed. On opening nite, it was wonderful
to see so many familiar faces in the theatre
(about 3/4 full), and to work again with Erik
Marcus. If you did miss the film while it was
in town, it will be available on DVD in August.
Thanks to everyone for their support! You can
read the thanks that the film distribution company
sent to us.
