MFA'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.
Local 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.
Rounding out the weekend's activities was an exciting lineup of inspiring speakers, including Vegucated producer Demetrius Bagley, New York Times bestselling author Victoria Moran, and NutritionFacts.org's Michael Greger.
