New York City’s first exclusively vegetarian food festival will take place on Sunday, April 3. The event is the brainchild of Sarah Gross, founder of Rescue Chocolate, a company that donates all net profits to animal-rescue organizations; and Nira Paliwoda, an event planner and foodie. “This is inevitable for a city with so many conscious eaters,” Paliwoda says. “None of us can believe that it has never happened on this scale before.” The festival will have free admission and include samples from vegetarian restaurants, animal welfare information tables, live music, speakers, and a raffle benefitting Empty Cages Collective.
