Promoting Compassionate Cuisine at the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival

Last weekend, Mercy For Animals celebrated compassion with over ten thousand vegan and veg-curious visitors from all across the Northeast at the 17th annual Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. The two-day event, hosted by the Boston Vegetarian Society, included a diverse range of food vendors, renowned speakers, and organizations promoting a wealth of information on animal rights, vegetarian eating, and protecting the environment through our food choices.

IMG_2102.jpgMFA's informational booth drew crowds of people eager to learn more about our groundbreaking investigations into factory farms and slaughterhouses, and to get tips on how to transition to a cruelty-free vegan lifestyle.

Festival-goers got a chance to sample delicious plant-based alternatives to meat, dairy, and eggs from dozens of popular vegan food vendors, including Upton's Naturals, May Wah Vegetarian Market, Gardein, Field Roast, Daiya, and world-famous Vegan Treats.

IMG_2142.JPGLocal favorite Peace O' Pie was also on hand dishing out dairy-free pizza and spicy Buffalo tofu bites, and FoMu--Boston's first all-vegan ice cream shop--was serving up samples of its delicious coconut-based Salted Caramel and Lavender ice creams. Other compassionate vendors included Compassion Co., Herbivore Clothing, Sudo Shoes, and Compassion Couture.
