Twin Cities Veg Fest 2014 will take place on Sunday, September 28, 2014. Yes, it’s a Sunday this year! The festival will take place at Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Twin Cities Veg Fest is for anyone and everyone – from omnivores to vegetarians and vegans! If you’ve ever thought about becoming vegetarian or are interested in reducing animal suffering, you’ll love Twin Cities Veg Fest. You can become a sponsor, apply to exhibit, or apply as a speaker today.
Twin Cities Veg Fest is free to attend. Learn where your food comes from, how to be a healthy vegetarian or vegan, and why being compassionate benefits everyone. Plus you’ll enjoy tons of free vegan food samples and delicious vegan cuisine. Everyone who came to our 2013 and 2012 festivals had a great time.
Chicken Run Rescue: An Oasis of Peace
Compassionate Action for Animals is hosting a tour of Chicken Run Rescue on Saturday, August 9th, from noon to 1:00 p.m. I hope you'll come and experience for yourself the peace and healing of this chicken sanctuary in Minneapolis.
Two years ago, I had an amazing experience visiting Chicken Run Rescue, which provides temporary shelter and veterinary care for neglected, abused, and abandoned chickens and works to find adopters in the Twin Cities area. It's a little oasis of peace in the middle of a busy city. I had passed by the sanctuary many times, and I was surprised that something like this existed.
Most of us would like to think that the meat, milk, and eggs we buy come from animals who have lived happy, healthy lives. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Like cats and dogs, the animals we eat have complex emotions including the ability to suffer. Yet on modern farms, they are treated with such disregard that similar treatment to a cat or dog would be grounds for felony cruelty charges in Minnesota.
