Share the Care! National Vegetarian Week, 18 to 24 May 2015

Posted by Mike on 11/05/15 in Articles, VfL News and Events

Share the Care! Sharing is the theme of this year’s National Vegetarian Week and we're encouraging all residential care homes across the UK to take part. Letting all residents share the delicious meals prepared for vegetarian and vegan residents brings with it many benefits – from offering different tastes, colours and aromas to being an excellent source of nutrients and fibre. More broadly, we all know that every now and then many meat eaters will choose to have a vegetarian meal. It might be that they are tempted by the recipe or that they want a change from their normal diet. It would be wonderful if those who are cared for by others were remembered and offered a similar choice. Don't forget that Vegetarian for Life has plenty of resources, from a detailed catering guide through to vegetarian and vegan menu planners. For additional support in catering for older vegetarians and vegans please contact VfL on 0161 4458064, by email, or by visiting And of course, we'd love to hear what you're doing to celebrate National Vegetarian Week. Please let us know what you'll be doing to Share the Care!
