NCVA at the Ottawa Eco Fair

The NCVA has participated as an exhibitor at the Ottawa Eco Fair for years, and we were there again in full force yesterday, Saturday Sept. 17.

Our volunteer cookie bakers baked late into the night to prepare bite-sized deliciousness to entice people over to our table to talk to us about the many benefits of plant-based diets. I’m beginning to think that Earth Balance should be paying us for every time we answer the question, while savouring our cookie creations, “What do you use instead of butter?”

It was a good day all-around, and a good opportunity to talk to people, make connections, become better acquainted with each other, and wave at Miss Kate and Auntie Loo who were across the corridor from us selling goodies.

A big thank you to our tabling volunteers: David, Markey, Erin, Neil, Amanda, Shaun, Kim, Josh, Shannon, Erica, Isabelle, Len, Raphael, Madeleine, and Michelle! We always receive so much good feedback about how friendly and helpful our volunteers are, and yesterday was no exception.

And thank you as well to our cookie bakers, who baked more than 500 cookies and other treats! The feedback on those was stellar, as usual!
