Want to go vegan, but need some help and support? Sign up for a FREE 5 week program coming to Syracuse September 15-October 13.
The Vegan Living Program (VLP) is a FREE educational program that covers the how’s and why’s of living vegan, including the ethical and environmental considerations of veganism, nutrition, cooking, meal planning, and living vegan in a not-yet-vegan world. Participants pledge to live vegan for the duration of the program, with the help of volunteer Vegan Coaches and our educational program. Pledges receive a binder full of resources and recipes, and a goody bag of free vegan stuff to make the transition easier and more fun!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to today’s downtown Food Share.
We were able to provide 68 people with hummus wraps, chickpea salad, lemon bars, apple crisp, deviled "eggs," jambalaya, cold water, and more. Thanks to a couple of donations we were also able to distribute socks, shoes, and 3 bags of women’s clothing.
For those who would like to get involved in the future, contact @Jim Thompson to talk about how you can be a part of the fun. … See MoreSee Less

The Great New York State Fair has come a long way.
In 2015, Strong Hearts Cafe brought the first all vegan (first all vegetarian, even) menu to the fair in its history. Every year their line grows longer with eager vegans and prevegans, alike. Now, 4 years later, there are several options, including one of our favorites, The Sweet Praxis bringing vegan chocolate chip cookies this year! [We’re still holding out hope that the Fair will offer plant milk to wash them down with!]
2019 is the second year that Mark Pawliw with Farm to Fork 101 is organizing the Wegmans Demonstration Kitchen and this year he’s brought on *several* plant-based demonstrations. There are a couple more that we are working on confirming, but here is the schedule for FOUR plant based cooking demonstrations you can find at the fair this year.
Friday, Aug 23rd at 2pm: Stefanie Heath Reinert of the Humane Society
Saturday, Aug 31 at 2pm: Joseph Dunaway of Knifehand Nutrition
Monday, Sept 2 at 2pm: Geoff Carbone of Clean Eating with the Carbones
