free vegan food in the DC area this weekend

Free vegan food! No joke.

On Sunday, there is free vegan food (from Java Green, Antonio’s Cafe, Vegetable Garden, and cake from Sticky Fingers) at the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary Open House.

Sunday, October 12, 2008
1 to 5 p.m.

Our biggest event of the year – and everyone’s invited! Come enjoy a live band, delicious catered food and drink, a fabulous silent auction, clowns and face painting, speakers, and the opportunity to stroll around and visit the rescued animals.

Karen Dawn, animal activist and author of Thanking the Monkey, Rethinking the Way We Treat Animals, will be the keynote speaker. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the rescued animals.

No admission fee, but donations (of any amount) are very much appreciated. RSVP requested.

On Monday, there is free vegan food plus a talk on nutrition by Dr. Greger.

On Mon., Oct. 13, COK is hosting a free vegan dinner and nutrition lecture featuring Michael Greger, M.D. Learn practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease. Dr. Greger is a physician, author, and internationally recognized professional speaker on a number of important public health issues. He serves as the Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at The Humane Society of the United States.

WHERE: Greenbelt Library at 11 Crescent Rd. in Greenbelt Md.

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, it is a COK benefit day at Stickyfingers. This is not free, but since you can get free Stickyfingers at the sanctuary on Sunday, let’s not quibble. Stickyfingers is worth paying money for!

Now you can get the best vegan buns in D.C. and help COK help animals at the same time! Starting on Oct. 14, the all-vegan and award-winning Sticky Fingers Bakery is hosting a benefit day on the second Tuesday of each month—a portion of the day’s sales will be automatically donated to COK. Join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert!

Unfortunately I’ll be in Chicago for most of these events. I’ll be at the sanctuary for the Open House, of course. I signed up to help in the chicken area, so if you wander down there, say hello! I’ll probably be the grumpy one.
