Montreal Is Hosting A Free Vegan BBQ On Saint-Catherine Street Today

Finally, a Montreal food event all the vegans & vegetarians in the city can enjoy, along with all the carnivores. To help promote alternatives to meat products, and do a 'lil fundraising, SPA Canada is throwing World Tofu Day free vegan barbecue, a huge gathering where free veggie burgers and dogs will be given so you can eat your veggie-heat out.

BBQ's are traditionally all about meat, so that's they the SPA is turning the barbecue-preconception on its head, by offering only plant-based foods and munchies. Most may be a 'lil skeptical about a vegan BBQ, but the whole event is free, so why not try out veggie-dog or burger and see if you like it or not? You'll be saving some animals and expanding your food-horizons all at once, without spending a dime.
