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.
