Maryland VegWeek to kick off Saturday

The Maryland animals rights group Compassion Over Killing kicks off its Maryland VegWeek this Saturday with pledges from local officials to go vegetarian for the week.

The goal of the event is to highlight the benefits of forgoing meat. But the week will also offer lots of freebies, such as cooking demonstrations, and discounts at area restaurants, such as Brick Oven Pizza on S. Broadway and Van Gough Cafe on S. Ann.

“Every time we choose vegetarian foods, we’re helping build a kinder, cleaner, and healthier world,” says Compassion Over Killing Executive Director Erica Meier. “And Maryland VegWeek highlights these benefits as well as the increasing availability of meat-free foods in restaurants and grocery stores in and around Maryland.”
