Come to the RA Centre this weekend for the latest iteration of Ottawa Veg Fest. Admission is by donation, in support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s Community Harvest Program and the National Capital Vegetarian Association. More than 100 vendors will have healthy products on display, along with cooking demonstrations and several compelling local speakers. How about signing up for the 31 Day Vegan Challenge? Parking is free and the location is convenient for biking and transit, so come out and support a worthy cause.
