NYC Vegetarian Food Festival 2010
Every year, the Big Apple's resident foodies, vegetarians, and local-minded folk flock to the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival to sample mouthwatering healthy cuisine. Local vegetarian restaurants and food companies such as Raw IceCream Company, Tierra Farm, and Rescue Chocolate offer up tasty, cruelty-free treats with a side of good conscience, as most of the vendors donate to nonprofits and churn out organic and vegan foods. As guests swarm the booths to get a taste, wellness vendors and animal-welfare activists relay information on healthy, conscious lifestyle choices, such as why cutting a line of people is always a bad idea. Live entertainment keeps crowds in good spirits, and proceeds from the event's raffle benefits For The Animals Sanctuary.
