The Vegan/Vegetarian club at Stroudsburg High School has a tasteful future. Sandra Felin, director of AWSOM animal shelter, is scheduled to attend a meeting along with a rescued dog from AWSOM. During this time, the club will host a bake sale with vegan foods prepared a day earlier by veg club students. These dates are to be announced and all SHS students are welcome to attend. All of the money made will be donated to the AWSOM organization. From this event, students will benefit by learning healthy vegan recipes, gaining awareness of a local animal shelter, and raising money to help animals.

The club also plans to organize a showing of the documentary, Cowspiracy, Ai??at the Pocono Community theater towards the end of the year. The documentary talks about animal agriculture, the environment, and sustainability. Cowspiracyai??i??s website gives information about the film and can be found here:

Anyone whoai??i??s interested in discovering more about the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle can go to the SHS library, which has a variety of books about the topic. There you can find information, health benefits, and recipes.
