Lots of Good Stuff This Month...
Take the Vegan Food Stamp Challenge
AWFW's Founding Director, Dawn Moncrief, will be taking the Vegan Food Stamp Challenge next week.
To join, try eating for one week on a total budget of $30 (the typical amount per food stamp recipient).
The official dates are October 13-19 in honor of World Food Day (Oct 16), but you can pick your time.
Some people donate the money they saved to a local pantry. If you choose to donate (some or all) through A Well-Fed World, just write "food stamps" or "India" in the comment field and we'll send 100% to this vegan feeding program in India.
If you don't know how much you spend on food in a week, you may choose to use American average of $151. Here's the optional pledge packet.
See Dawn's planned menu on Facebook.
CharitySub Selects AWFW for Donations
CharitySub is a nonprofit organization with an innovative style of micro-philanthropy. Members donate $5/month. Each month a new cause is selected... then 3 organizations are chosen represent that cause.
Members then choose the group they want to receive that month's $5 donation. In addition to awareness-raising, those small donations add up to make a real difference.
This month's issue is friendly farming. It's a real honor to be one of this month's nonprofits, sharing the stage with Compassion Over Killing and Farm Sanctuary.
Presenting at the Central Florida VegFest
AWFW's Dawn Moncrief will be presenting at the Central Florida VegFest on Saturday, October 26th.
Her presentation -- Future Trends: The Impact of Meat on Global Hunger and Global Warming -- will address the causes and consequences of the drastically increasing global meat consumption. Specific attention will be paid to the impact of animal-sourced foods on global hunger and global warming.
Also included is why switching to local, grass-fed or "just chicken" isn't enough and why it's especially important for Americans to take a lead role in reducing national and global meat consumption.

Dawn's Interview & Others Transcribed
