A Black Vegan Food Fest in Brooklyn

Akua Joy sold her Super Mini Vegan Muffins at the inaugural Black Vegfest in Bed-Stuy on Aug. 11.

At the first Black Vegfest on Aug. 11 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, more than a dozen vendors offered vegetarian and vegan foods as part of an event co-presented by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who himself follows a vegan diet.

In covering the festival for Brooklyn Paper, reporter Alexandra Simon spoke to participants, including baker Akua Joy who sold Super Mini Vegan Muffins with her 3-year-old daughter.

Joy, her tot, and her husband Guru Singh also spent the day chatting with attendees about their family’s decision to take up veganism a year ago, a change she believes more black Brooklynites will be willing to make as the Vegfest and other health-advocacy events in their community take root in the borough.

Go to Brooklyn Paper to read comments from Joy and others at Black Vegfest on how such events can help spread the word about the benefits of a meatless diet.

  1. What a great idea! Vegan foods is a way for people from all backgrounds and cultures to work/fight to improve our environment, health, social justice and the lives of billions of animals unnecessarily bred and killed every year for humans.
