Press Release

For Immediate Release 

Flint, MI -  The health crisis in Flint, Michigan continues…and it’s about more than poor water quality. It's also about limited access to nutritious food and to information about healthy food choices. In response, Fresh Start CDC Inc.-Flint held a successful first Veggie Fest Flint in October 2017. This year, MI Green Team has joined the effort and is helping to expand the programming, vending and exhibiting, to serve more people eager to learn about plant-based living, in the Flint area and beyond.

Hip Hop is Green, the plant-based national touring act, will headline the live entertainment. Cam Awesome, 12-time national champion boxer, will return to Michigan to emcee the event. Marc Ramirez of Chickpea and Bean will headline a strong speaking line-up. Qur Broden of Cooking With Que and others will offer cooking demonstrations in the beautiful demo kitchen. Plant Based Nutrition Support Group and Veg Michigan will be on-hand to provide information and resources. Plus, there’ll be great shopping, door prizes, giveaways, free samples, show specials and delicious concessions from Shimmy Shack, The Nosh Pit Detroit and others.


MGT's first urban veg event, V313: Detroit’s Premier Vegan Celebration (3/8/18), was a major success and honored to be included in Detroit's listing among PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)'s Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Cities. The event, and its 2000+ participants, helped put Detroit on the vegan map. Event organizers are hoping to do that for Flint by attending the second annual Veggie Fest Flint on Wednesday, September, 26th, from 3pm to 8pm, at the award-winning Flint Farmers' Market.

Parking and admission to all programs is FREE. $10 VIP tickets include door prize drawing entry and a goody bag with $5 in concessions vouchers and more. VIP tickets, directions and details are available at www.VFF18.org.
