Free Class for Restaurant Professionals
Date: 08/19/2019
Time: 2:00:00 PM
Description:

 Rhode Island Vegan Awareness is offering a free class on ways local Rhode Island restaurants can add vegan items to their menus, using items already on hand.


This is an opportunity to stay competitive in the market and cater to millennials who are rapidly moving toward a vegan diet. Both Forbes magazine and the The Economist named 2019 “The Year of the Vegan” as the demand for vegan offerings skyrockets. According to Forbes, 25 percent of Americans 25 to 34 years old identify as vegan or vegetarian. In the United States, sales of vegan foods rose 10 times faster from January to June 2018 than overall food sales. As this trend continues, to remain competitive, restaurants will need to appeal to vegan eaters. This class will demonstrate simple, cost-beneficial ways of adding delicious vegan options to your menu.

A free vegan meal will be provided.

Who: Restaurant owners, managers, cooks and other decision-makers

When: 2 pm Monday August 19

Where: Hope & Main: 691 Main St. Warren, RI.

The class is free but space is limited. To RSVP please send an e-mail to riva@veganawareness.org or call (401) 919-2058.
