On Thursday, January 12th, Huntsville Vegans hosted a screening of the film Forks Over Knives at the Main Library.
Despite the freezing temperatures and snow, we had 21 participants at this event. Everyone who attended was given Vegan Outreach’s Guide to Cruelty Free Eating as well as information from PCRM.
Thanks to our members, we were able to share a variety of vegan food. From Natalia’s delicious samosas to Carole’s amazing dessert, there was a wealth of healthy food for those considering a plant-based diet to try.
Before the screening, Alex Graff gave a short talk on the importance of a proactive approach to health.
After the screening, Alex Graff and Mike Cross answered the audience’s questions. These questions included “Where do I start?”, “Where do you get your B12?”, and “What does a vegan breakfast look like?”
We received great feedback from this event, with more than one audience member telling us that the movie was an eye-opening experience. Our aim in hosting health-based events is to support our community by offering education and support as people transition to a plant-based diet.
