The catered dinner was purchased with a grant provided by the Food for Thought program. Thanks to the talents of Emily’s Catering & Cakes, attendees enjoyed an array of tasty bites including tofu lettuce cups, crostini with fig and butternut squash, endive with curried tofu, stuffed mushrooms, polenta with chili, seasonal fresh fruit, and cobbler. (It all sounds absolutely delicious!) The best part of it all? Zero animals were harmed in the creation of the meal!
Patti Galle, the Executive Director of NCPIN, said people were raving about “how good [the] vegan food was,” and added that “many had not tried it before [and] loved it!” It is always fun to try new foods. It is also so exciting to see more and more animal welfare groups like NCPIN expanding their scope of impact by choosing to leave animal products off their plates at events. Way to go, NCPIN! We deeply admire your commitment and compassion.
