5/3/14 - Vegan Sampling at Out!Raleigh FestivalDSCN0777DSCN0766

When: 5/3/14

Where: Downtown Raleigh, NC

Refuge founder Lenore Braford and volunteers teamed up with Brenda & Laurent Menard of Triangle Meatless Mondays to hand out free vegan food samples to participants of the Out!Raleigh Festival in downtown Raleigh. Together they handed out 620 vegan sausage samples, 400 samples of chocolate almond milk, and 400 samples of soy yogurt! Educational literature on veganism was also offered to each person who tried one of the samples. This was the first food sampling event for the Refuge, and we were grateful for the help and support of the Menards. We look forward to participating in more vegan food sampling events in the future.
