2. Vallejo Healthy Food Fest – A Huge Success!
This year, nearly 400 people attended our Vallejo Healthy Food Fest! The event included vegan food representing Vallejo’s rich cultural diversity (vegan chicken adobo [a Filipino favorite], beans, Mexican rice, corn tortillas, kale and cabbage greens, and samples of chickenless nuggets)!
We’re super excited to have received a certificate from Vallejo’s mayor thanking us for our work on improving access to healthy foods.
Thanks so much to our tireless community organizer, Maria Guevara, the wonderful Chef Evangelina, and all the amazing performers and volunteers who contributed to making the day such a success!
As one attendee put it: “As a Filipino, gotta say I was impressed with the #vegan Adobo seitan at the @FoodIsPower #makevallejohealthy event. Bravo Chef Evangelina!”
