I am dedicated to bridging cultural gaps and empowering individuals to realize that their voices and their actions matter. My advocacy efforts as Veggie Happy (formerly Soy Happy) were initiated with this belief in mind. We all count. If every one of us realizes this, amazing things can happen!
Veggie Happy celebrates what's positive and what's possible. When I advocate for plant-based options on mainstream menus, I only encourage items with proven appeal and popularity among all food lovers, making it a win/win proposition.
I began my quest in 2000 when zero Major League Baseball stadiums offered veggie dogs on the menu. I offered consultation and liaison assistance to each and every one and created this website to galvanize fans. Today, only two MLB parks remain without veggie dogs on the menu. Many also offer veggie burgers and.some also offer vegan cheese steak, veggie chicken or vegan cheese pizza. Suffice it to say,.mainstream ballpark fare has come a long way!
In addition to providing free consultation and liaison assistance to foodservice providers, Veggie Happy offers.Affiliation and promotional services to viable plant-based food companies and kindred organizations.
