My sister wrote a book called That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals and she constantly encounters people who say really inane things like, â€œI don’t think I’ve ever actually eaten any vegan food.â€ She usually responds with â€œWell, have you ever had an apple?â€ and then they feel pretty stupid. Don’t be one of those idiots.
I stumbled upon this nomadic vegan brunch called Access CafÃ©. They seem to take place only rarely, so take advantage of this one! If I paraphrase, it’s gonna sound like a bunch of kumbaya hooey, so I’ll just quote their Facebook invitation:
â€œJoin us for delicious food, live music and lovely company. Pay what you think the experience is worth- or contribute your time and energy to make this cafe a truly community supported project. Help with dishes, chop some vegetables, pour mimosas. We believe that the more we all contribute, the more everyone benefits. With much hope about creating a future that provides access to food and water for all, and the biggest community network we can imagine, Love, All Access CafÃ©.â€
Oh look at that! They managed to sound kumbaya-y all on their own. Just kidding. In all seriousness, making affordable and nutritious plant-based food accessible to all is important, plus any donation-based brunch is, simply, pretty rad. See a video of one of their past cafÃ©s here.
