COK Hits a Home Run with Vegan Feed-In at Nationals Stadium!

Michelle and Aashish serve up delicious veg food!COK staff and volunteers were out on the streets of DC again to promote compassion: this time, in front of the Washington Nationals’ baseball stadium. On May 2, before the game started, we gave away over 100 free Field Roast  vegan sausauge samples to veg-curious passersby! The response was wonderful: in addition to dozens of people asking where they could get veggie hot dogs and sausages, several people came back after tasting the Field Roast to tell us how much they liked it and to pick up more information about vegetarian eating to share with their friends and family.  

VegWeek 2011: Federal, State, and Local Officials Take 7-Day Veg Pledge

VegWeek 2011For the third year in a row, Compassion Over Killing hosted VegWeek in April, a week-long celebration encouraging others to take 7-day veg pledge as a simple, yet effective way, to help protect their health, the planet and animals.

Launched in 2009 in our hometown of Takoma Park, MD, our  first-ever VegWeek was inspired by Md. Senator Jamie Raskin and officially recognized through a Mayoral Proclamation. Sen. Raskin was the first person to sign up for our one-week veg pledge—and it’s a pledge he’s kept to this day!

For many vegans, the “Veggie Delight” is a convenient and affordable dining option—when dashing out to lunch, for a quick bite while traveling, or even for parties.

And while it’s great to have this option, oftentimes, vegans, vegetarians, and those looking for a more healthful alternative are left wanting something “meatier” to go with their sandwich, such as vegetarian turkey, chicken, or ham slices.
