We're hosting our 8th annual Vegan Food Showcase on the West Bank of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and we need your help to make it happen!
Join us for one of the most fun and effective actions we do to advocate for animals: give away free vegan food samples and literature about factory farming to thousands of college students. You can help out for one hour or three, and enjoy the food and smiles as we hand out samples to the campus public. We need help to set up starting at 7 am, and especially need help between 10 am to 2 pm to giveaway food. We'll need help until 4 pm to clean up. Please call or email Unny at 612-276-2242 to sign up for your slot!
CAA is planning to organize a Veg Festival in the summer of 2012. Organizing this event takes place over a long period of time (approximately 9-10 months). Committee members are responsible for specific tasks related to the festival. There are various committee positions that need to be filled if this even is going to happen. Please contact Unny if you are interested.
The VegFest will be a one day event focused on vegan food and outreach. The goal is to attract at least 1,000 people during the course of the day. The event will consist of several different pieces, an exhibitor's room, speakers, and (possibly) entertainment.
Time Commitment and Evaluation
These positions starts in August, and runs until the festival, which will be held in the summer of 2012. The initial time commitment will be a few hours a month, gradually increasing as the festival approaches.
Please see our website for more details and position descriptions.

There were 13 entries in the first vegan main dish category.
Forget the new food-on-a-stick. The biggest novelty this year may be the newcomer in the food competition at the Minnesota State Fair's Creative Activities building: a vegan main dish.
