Food Sampling at the Minnesota State Capitol

Food Sampling at State CapitolThanks to everyone who helped with our Vegan Food Sampling event at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul on March 5!

ARC volunteers Connie, Steve T., Garrett, and Steve S. did an excellent job giving out 181 food samples and 160 pieces of literature in a little over an hour.

The Capitol only allows distribution of factory-wrapped food so lucky legislators and staffers enjoyed Lemony Lemon Cookies from Sun Flour Baking Company.

ARC VolunteersA legislator who had talked to us at another event stopped by and shared the changes he’d made since our last encounter. He said he hadn’t thought about the mass production of animals before and that he and his wife have been cutting down on animal products and including more whole fruits and veggies into their daily routine. It’s always so great to hear personal stories of how we’re making a difference for animals!
