Vegan News – 21 vegetarian & vegan celebrities


NATIONAL VEGETARIAN Week kicks off today (May 18), and it’s time to experience the best of what Mother Nature has to offer – minus the meat.

Going veggie for a week is easy, tasty and it’s good for the planet too.

Created by the Vegetarian Society in 1992, National Vegetarian Week is a chance for veggies everywhere to show the world what being meat-free is all about.

The theme for this year’s National Vegetarian Week (May 18-24) – sponsored by premium snack company Nothing But – is ‘sharing’, and the Society is encouraging everyone to share their favourite veggie dishes with friends, family, work colleagues, community groups and the big wide world.

Lynne Elliot, chief executive of the Vegetarian Society, said: “Sharing food brings people together, feasts and meals mark special occasions while festivals offer a variety of tastes to try.”

She continued: “National Vegetarian Week is all about delicious veggie food and sharing – getting people to come together to cook and share.

“Whether you decide to make veggie dishes for a community group, work colleagues or friends – sharing food can make a moment.

“There’s no better way to celebrate veggie food and discover how you can be kinder to animals, the planet and yourself.”
