The Vegetarian Society supports families, individuals, businesses, caterers and many others. We are also home to the Cordon Vert catering school and the 'Seedling Symbol' which is an accreditation scheme to show that food is suitable for vegetarians. As we cover a diverse range of areas we are constantly working on new campaigns, attending events and dealing with the press, to name just a few of our activities. To keep you up to date with the most notable elements of our work, we'll use this space to post anything of interest.
Two Vegetarian Society staff members have bust the myth that vegetarians are pale, weak and weedy, as they both completed the Greater Manchester Marathon for charity on 28 April, with good times. Alex, from Sale, is the Principal Tutor at the Vegetarian Society’s Cordon Vert cookery school in Altrincham while Coral, from Winton, is the Vegetarian Society’s Database Co-ordinator. Well done!
National Vegetarian Week nominated for VegFestUK awards
The Vegetarian Society are pleased to announce that National Vegetarian Week has been nominated for an award from VegFestUK, in the 'campaigns' category. Voting is still open, so please add your vote for us...
We've joined the IF campaign because we believe that the lower environmental impact of a vegetarian diet is part of the solution to world hunger.
The horsemeat debacle has been making the headlines for a couple of months now, so we decided to capitalise on the increased interest in vegetarianism and vegetarian issues by launching our 'What's for Tea Mum?' online campaign.
National Vegetarian Week
NVW is not far away and we're encouraging everyone to get involved. The new posters and banners have arrived and are now available to order from our National Vegetarian Week website.
Vegetarians don't eat fish, and they never have. To get this message across we have had a long running fish campaign that has included Fish Free Friday, Fishconceptions cards and the Sea Singles website.
Say Cheese - Parmesan
This campaign is to help 'cheesed off veggies' who get offered Parmesan on their vegetarian food whilst eating out. Handy wallet sized cards can be left at the business, shop or restaurant to explain that Parmesan isn't suitable for vegetarians.
So why do we make pets out of some animals and mincemeat out of others?
