On Saturday July 13th, VSSJ visited Atlantic City, but we weren’t gambling! Twelve volunteers
helped out at VSSJ’s table at the Atlantic City Vegan Food Festival,
hosted by the NJ VegFest at the former casino Showboat.
The volunteers talked to hundreds of event attendees about the benefits
of a plant-based diet, and our “Name the Grain”, “Name the Bean”, and
“Spin the Wheel” games were extremely popular! We saw a lot of new
faces, some familiar ones too, and twenty-three members
joined VSSJ on the spot!
A big thank you to all of our volunteers:
Corinne, Janet, Vicki, Will, Carol, Tom, Lisa, Tammy, Heather, Iris,
Efua and Jess (VSSJ summer intern). Here are some photos of the day:
We are all set to go!
