Free Nutrition Talk and Vegan Food at La Casa

DC Veg Fest (courtesy of COK)
One of DC's hardest working and most dedicated organizations, Compassion Over Killing, is hosting an event right here in Mount Pleasant, tonight. Among many other animal friendly campaigns, COK is the brains and effort behind many of the vegan menus in DC. The Founding Farmers vegan menu (PDF) is one of my personal favorites. They also help produce events like DC Veg Fest, pictured left

COK and DC's Positive Force are sponsoring a talk tonight in La Casa at 3166 Mount Pleasant St NW. From COK: Join Compassion Over Killing and Positive Force for free vegetarian food and to learn the latest in human nutrition in an engaging multimedia presentation from Michael Greger, M.D, the director of public health and animal agriculture at The Humane Society of the United States. Using the latest published research in peer-reviewed scientific nutrition journals, Dr. Greger shows us how a humane diet is also the healthiest.

This event will include practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease in a fun, interactive quiz show format. The event is free and open to everyone!

The event is tonight from 6:30-8:30 pm.
