Annual Vegan Waffle Party a Big Success!

Photo of yummy waffleThanks to Sarahjane and all her kitchen helpers for making the Fourth Annual Global Vegan Waffle Party on Saturday, May 25 at Fuller Park in Minneapolis a huge success. Each year, the waffle party allows us to begin conversations about where our food comes from and the effects of our food choices. This year, the theme of the event was connection: the connection between veganism and protecting animals and the environment, and the building of connections with other members of our community. Over 100 people participated and we were thrilled to see all the new people interested in learning more about veganism.

Thanks also to LUV NICE CREAM for sampling their new vegan ice cream and donating a percentage of the sales to ARC. The ice cream has no added sugar, and it’s also gluten free and soy free. See photos from the waffle party and vegan ice cream sampling.
