Free Vegan Lifestyle Support for Those Who Want to Enjoy More Meatless Meals
Main Street Vegan Academy (MSVA) developed by Victoria Moran, just announced that 50+ vegan lifestyle coaches and educators, all MSVA graduates, will offer free education and support through June to those who want to enjoy meatless meals or explore the full vegan lifestyle.
Many consumers have expressed interest in reducing meat consumption after experiencing shortages due to the current pandemic. Others are curious about the health benefits and environmental sustainability of a vegan lifestyle. "Veganism is about reducing harm and living with a compassionate heart. Whether people are interested in cutting back on meat consumption, or exploring the vegan lifestyle more permanently, our coaches are here to support their journey.” said Moran.
The Meatless May boycott, launched by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) to support slaughterhouse employees who are being required to work despite the health risk during this time, is gaining traction and will continue beyond the end of the month. “Let’s take this from Meatless May to Meatless Nation,” said Joe Enrique Henry of LULAC.
Main Street Vegan Academy is proud to partner with LULAC in encouraging exploration of veganism. Visitors to Main Street Vegan's “Meatless May & More” site can complete a contact form with their question about plant-based eating and receive a personal phone or email response from a vegan lifestyle coach and educator (available in English and Spanish). The site links to free weekly online cooking classes and registration for free informational Zoom webinars on vegan eating and living with vegan lifestyle coaches and educators Holly Skodis and Sha-Hanna Soaper. Through the site, readers can also access webinars in Spanish, which are offered by Karima Vega and Enrique Velez.
