Unity in the Community

On Sunday Sept 12th VSSJ participated in the Unity in the Community event. Unity in the Community is part of  Willingboro Seventh-Day Adventist Church’s mission of “serving the community with love and compassion.” 

Volunteers for the church did a fantastic job putting this event together!! There was plenty to learn, see and do including:  groceries, veggie kits, recipes, school supplies, massages, games, health screenings, and more! To see photos and highlights of this event click here.

It was a sunny day at the beautiful Mill Creek Park in Willingboro.  We gave out apples as well as Recipe and Nutrition tip sheets.  The folks who visited us impressed us with their knowledge in our ‘Name the Grain’ and ‘Name the Bean’ games.  It was cool to interact with friendly folks genuinely interested in broadening their expertise of the plant-based!

All set with our name the bean and grain games. Participants received an apple and prizes!

Some of the participants in our games….


Winners! They named all the beans correctly!!

Ja’Bryah, Dyjae and Dymir said their Grandmom is vegetarian and cooks lots of beans 🙂


Several members of VSSJ stopped by to offer their support!


Name the fruit or vegetable children’s game was a huge success!


The Food Bank of South Jersey

They gave out this recipe sheet and a bag of food so that you could prepared the dish at home.


Water was given out along with a nice display about the importance of drinking plenty of water.
