Takoma Park, MD Kicks Off Third Annual VegWeek

The city’s mayor and four city council members will go veg.

Since its inception in 2009, Takoma Park VegWeek has had the support of local politicians, including Maryland Sen. Jamie Raskin who is still a vegetarian after pledging to ditch meat for just seven days. This year, Mayor Bruce Williams is signing not only a mayoral proclamation establishing April 23 to 29 as VegWeek, but also to eat a meat-free diet during this year’s celebration. He’s joined by Kay Daniels-Cohen, Seth Grimes, Terry Seamens, and Fred Schultz, Takoma Park councilmembers who are also ditching meat for the week. VegWeek has taken root across the country as well; Oakland, CA celebrated its first VegWeek from April 15 to 21.
