WRL’s Groundhog Day Vegan Luncheon was well attended and a fun and educational way to introduce delicious plant-based foods to the public and WRL’s members and volunteers. During the lunch, a WRL board member spoke compellingly and comprehensively about the case to be vegan for wildlife, and quoted our Why Vegan for Wildlife? resource. Food for Thought donor and volunteer, Alysoun Mahoney was also given the opportunity to talk generally about the FFT program and resources available.
On the tasty all-vegan and organic menu, prepared by GreenFare Organic Cafe: Local greens with orange walnut salad dressing, veggie chili over brown rice, sweet potato lasagna, and apple crispy for dessert.
WRL has now adopted a plant-based menu policy, “in recognition of the destruction of wildlife habitat that is caused by animal agriculture and the killing of wildlife that is done to protect livestock. The organization hopes that the new policy will bring attention to the ways our everyday meal choices may impact wildlife.”
Congratulations, Wildlife Rescue League, on your successful vegan luncheon and on your menu policy leadership which serves as an example to other wildlife organizations!
