ARC Vegan Cafe- Sat. June 24th
Vegan for the Environment
Central Presbyterian Church - 1260 Dauphin St Mobile
6-9 pm
with special guest Matt Lock, co-founder at Raddish
Please join us for a delicious raw menu in June followed by a timely presentationon on what we as individuals can do to help reverse climate change and protect the environment, as well as a special presentation by Matt Lock, co-founder of the new plant-based app Raddish. 
On the menu:
Pomegranate Tabouleh with Macadamia Feta and Thyme Crisp
Raw Lasagna
Blueberry Cheesecake 

After dinner, plese stick around for two presentations. In the first half an hour, we will be joined by Matt Lock, co-founder of the new app Raddish, which allows home based vegan cooks to pair up with people in the community looking for delicious home cooked vegan meals. Learn about this innovative app that will help more people eat plant-based foods and learn about how you can be a part of it, either as a cook, or a user. 

In the second half hour, we will discuss the impact our diet has on the environment and how we can each help reverse climate change with every meal. A WorldWatch report estimates that 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide are emitted by livestock production each year, while the U.S. EPA implicates animal agriculture as the largest emitter of methane, a much more powerful greenhouse gas. And according to the United Nations, animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions--more than the exhaust from the entire transportation sector (13.5%). Reducing our consumption of animal products is essential and the most powerful individual action we can each take to help prevent the most devastating impacts of climate change. 

Dinner is by donation. Suggested donation is $5-$20. From each accordingto his/her means.... All proceeds go to supporting ARC's mission to help awaken respect and compassion for all sentient beings and our pecious planet and help educate people about how to live our lives as a manifestation of that respect and compassion. 

Volunteers always needed!
