Restaurant outreach

–Please feel free to use the Cherry City Vegans name when talking to restaurant owners and asking for more options or doing other (positive) community outreach.  We also have business cards to share if you’d like to use one when talking to restaurants.
US Veg Week:  Apr. 20 – 26
–We don’t currently have anything planned, but if anyone wants to do something under the CCV name, let us know.
