From September 25 to October 2, the Animal Protection and Rescue League will commence its third annual Veg Week, which encourages veg-curious omnivores to go vegetarian or vegan for seven days. In addition to the pledge, the week’s activities include a vegan soft-serve ice cream social, natural foods shopping tour, plant-based cooking demo, nutrition lectures, and movie night with a screening of the documentary Forks Over Knives. APRL is a nonprofit organization dedicated to exposing animal cruelty, educating the public on animal-welfare issues, and working towards more humane legislation.
