Products of the Week

The irrepressible Joseph Espinosa writes: "Morningstar Farms is dead on with their Tuno, delivering all of the flavor and none of the suffering and death that comes standard in cans of Tuna. I have missed that taste for 12 years. I am happy to be reunited."

Vegan Outreach will no longer be carrying The Convenient Vegetarian cookbook after the last six copies have been sold. We've lowered the price to $10, and they can be ordered at our catalog.

Notes from Our Members

We have all been vegan for six months now, thanks to your booklets!
-TS, San Diego, CA, 10/17/05

I was handed your booklet on campus, and I found it very shocking yet powerful. I'm not yet vegan, but this booklet moved me to take action. Please send me more.

5. Completing a smooth handoff to a cyclist or skateboarder.
4. So many heartfelt interactions, including being sincerely thanked and even hugged!
3. When offering a booklet to a couple, being turned down by one, to then have the booklet accepted by the other.
2. Hearing "I got a booklet from you yesterday and now I'm a vegetarian," (which is a direct quotation from today).
