Monthly Foodie Friday events are running this summer and autumn in Calderdale. “A feast for the senses on the last Friday of each month.” 3 Valley Vegans are hosting a stall on Todmorden open air market on Friday, 26 July 2019.
Our information stall will be a celebration of veganism and will promote all things vegan. We will provide information about how and why to go vegan and where to buy and eat vegan food in the area. There will be vegan recipes demonstrated and written down for people to take away and free samples of vegan food for people to try. If anyone would like to help out either by baking or creating some food samples to give away or by helping out on the stall then please contact Hilary on firstname.lastname@example.org. Even a few hours would be wonderful.
