Gloucestershire Vegan Group member Sahaya has been busy. A student at Stroud College, she took it upon herself to promote World Vegan Month by having a vegan stall for a week in the foyer at Stroud College. Helped by a team of volunteers, she did a great job of getting the word out there about veganism. They did this by having info leaflets, vegan-pledge forms, recipe cards, information about local vegan-friendly places to eat, as well as ever-popular free food samples. She also worked with the catering company at the college to ensure that during that week, there were several vegan options available for students in the canteens at all of South Gloucestershire & Stroud College campuses.

It sounds as if the stall was really popular, Sahaya writes: “I was so surprised that we had so much interest and a constant queue often made up of entirely teenagers who were not merely interested in the free food but also what we were there to talk about. I got many dedicated, enthusiastic and helpful volunteers – SU staffs, vegans, vegetarians, friends and people who were interested in the diet enough to help out on the day. Some students were enquiring about a college vegan group and some for vegan food demo. Some of the volunteers even had a great idea of taking platters of food to the people eating in cafeteria.”
It’s great to hear of more World Vegan Month events happening in Gloucestershire.
