People who follow special diets are always careful about what they’re eating – especially at restaurants and social events, where choices are usually limited. But on Oct. 1, Schlow Centre Region Library, in State College, will be a haven for those who choose to keep animal products out of their diets.
From 1 to 4 p.m. this Saturday, the Penn State Vegetarian Club will celebrate World Vegetarian Day with a vegan potluck. Aside from herbivore-friendly food, the event will also include product samples, free DVDs, free stickers, books for sale, educational materials, and raffle prizes.
According to the event’s Facebook page: “World Vegetarian Day was established as an annual celebration to promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism. In honor of this day, we will be having a huge, vegan potluck!”
All are welcome, the only requirement is that everyone must bring a vegan dish (or donate $5), enabling “every flavor of vegetarians to eat freely.” That means things like meat, fish, dairy products, honey and eggs are out. The club encourages people to look online for vegan recipes if they’re not sure what to make.
