Oakland's Own Photo Story: Oakland Veg Week Grand Finale

Oakland Veg California sponsored Oakland Veg Week April 22nd through April 28th. 

Whole Foods was in the building with a fresh quinoa salad

They extended a pledge for Oaklanders to eat Vegetarian or Vegan meals for 7 days. The week was full of informative events primarily held at Whole Foods in Oakland to educate the curious and encourage the devout. 

Attendees nibbling on samples from Donna Tamales, Zachary's, Local L.O.V.E. and more

The week culminated in a free celebration at the Lake Merritt Sailboat House with a host of Vegetarian/Vegan vendors, activists such as VegFund, consultants and retailers.

The crowd listening in on the food demo

Chef Robert Dorsey III, founder of Junior Chef Society, conducted a live demo of an easy, flavorful, plant strong meal. 

My favorites from the event are pictured below! 

Amazing eggless double chocolate cookies (they were SO good) from Hampton Creek Foods

Yummy vegan falafel and chutneys form Yogi's Cooking

Creamy, nut-based, dairy-free ice cream from Genuto. The Chocolate Hazelnut flavor was fantastic!
Attendees received a goodie bag full of vegan snacks, a comprehensive list of vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Oakland and coupons!  

Oakland has so many options to support a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, take the pledge any time!
