Do any vegetarian groups want (free for the postage) vegan food pyramid poster?

I am just doing early spring cleaning of my office. I have several
hundred large posters of the vegan food pyramid to give away.

These are in large poster size, not small.

The posters themselves are free; I'd ask recipents to pay for the
postage (I'd only mail them in batches; by the way, postage in a tube
from Canada can be a little expensive). Vegetarian groups could sell
them; we were selling them for $5 each and perhaps vegetarian groups
could use them as fundraisers, gifts or whatever.

They were created by EarthSave (Louisville Kentucky, with the help of
John Borders), artist Dave Brousseau; dietitian Brenda Davis, and
myself. food_guide. htm

    Sounds awesome, I may have to contact her and find out if I can get a bunch for my clinic to give to patients.

    I need one of those badly in the natural foods store where I work. They put up a "nutrition guide" given out for free by Nordic, the fish oil company, and the first recommended food for almost everything is meat. It's disgusting, and truly puts our customers in danger as they come into our store seeking better eating tips and that's what they see.
    Maybe we should begin a campaign to create a real nutrition guide, not containing foods that will give people cancer, heart disease, stroke, etc., or derived from the brutalization and murder of voiceless sentient beings, and send them free to every natural foods store throughout the country. We can apply for grant funding for help in the printing costs and such.

    There are a lot of vegan and vegetarian guides that are already out there. I did post the vegan food guide pyramid recently on another thread. Usually the posters themselves are more general such as protein group has beans, etc etc but then you can find more specific information within groups on which things are healthier to consume (lower sodium beans for example). Also to note, while this pyramid is a wonderful and helpful tool, there is newer information out there as well. Here are some other resources:

    Now those are more created for the professional and not the consumer but I thought you guys might like some of the info. If I find a good one stop resource I will let you know. But I know the info is definitely out there, we just have to find it. But hey, if you want to get a grant to pay this dietitian to make one for you, cough cough, lol :oP
