DC Meat-Free Week

Capitol City vegans founded Meat-Free Week in response to the city’s first Meat Week celebration.

Today kicks off DC Meat-Free Week, a weeklong event created by Capitol City vegans to celebrate cruelty-free diets and counteract the city's first-ever Meat Week, which ends tomorrow. Meat-Free Week runs until February 12, and each day is chock-full of vegan events, including discounts at local veg restaurants, a benefit at vegan bakery Sticky Fingers, and a bake sale fundraiser for Haiti. Two DC eateries are also celebrating transitions to all-vegan menus this week. Great Sage is hosting a party to celebrate its new all-vegan menu with Farm Sanctuary's Gene Baur, and sandwich shop My Little Bistro is unveiling an all-vegan menu to accompany its standard, meat-based menu.
