On October 20, 2013, students volunteered at the 2013 Veggie Fair, which promotes the health benefits and agricultural benefits of being a vegetarian or vegan. Students worked crafting tables with children, provided parking safety, worked the entrance and provided information, worked the merchandise table and listened to Dallas ISD graduate Erykah Badu speak as the keynote speaker and perform. Several students also got to meet her. In other pictures, you will see a lady, Kristina Carillo. She is the founder of the largest raw, organic produce co-operative in the U.S. Kristina has been 100% raw for almost 7 years.
Students’ eyes were opened into the world of vegetarianism. It was absolutely wonderful hearing such great compliments of BA students. Erykah Badu asked students where they went to school, and Valeria Ramirez told her “Bryan Adams.” Badu responded “B.A.!” and the students were in awe.
