Today through the Daytona Beach Vegetarian Society we held an event that was open to the community. The event was a celebration of the Great American Meatout. We had a special guest speaker, Dr. Will Tuttle, who is author of "The World Peace Diet." We also had a lot of food for people to try, prizes to give away, and literature to hand out. We had a great turnout of people!
We have many thanks to give for such a great event. A special thank you goes to Dr. Will Tuttle, who was a fabulous speaker. He certainly planted some seeds of compassion today. You can learn more about him, his book, his speaking tour schedule, and his wife's beautiful paintings here. He was a great speaker and we were thrilled to have him. One downside to having a kindle (which I have and love) is that I couldn't have him sign my book today! But it's a wonderful and insightful book that everyone should read.
Thank you also to those who helped provide the food, literature, and prizes. These companies included VegFund, Edward and Sons, gardein, Sunshine Burger, Sweetsies Bakery, Cinematique of Daytona, Primal, Lightlife, So Delicious, Turtle Island Foods, Field Roast, the Vegetarian Resource Group, and Michael's Health Foods.
