These coordinators are developing invaluable resources for nonprofits in the area so they can better source veg fare and more easily implement veg policies. Now and in the coming months, Deva, Janice and Barbara will undertake outreach at area conferences, seek out additional endorsements, and work with local volunteers and activists.
If you're in one of these regions, please reach out to your coordinator and see how the Food for Thought campaign can benefit you!
