Disaster Ready, Vegan Style

Here is a very useful Vegan-friendly checklist from THE SEED to help you be prepared for the next time Mother Nature decides to take our power away for a while. Our stRAWberry gRAWnola made the snack list! RAWsome!

Our hearts go out to all who have suffered, and are still suffering, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. With the help of our wonderful social media followers, we have assembled recommendations for a Natural Disaster Survival Kit made specifically for vegans! Be sure to stock up on the following items before Mother Nature strikes again.

Post-Sandy Resources

If you are currently unable to return to your home, use these resources to locate emergency shelters along the East Coast.

If you want to physically help in NYC, get in touch with New York Cares, which is the city’s largest volunteer organization and is recruiting volunteers to help with Sandy relief efforts. Sign up to help on theNew York Cares website, call them at #212-228-5000 or email nycservice@cityhall.nyc.gov with your name, email address and borough.

To financially support rescue and human relief efforts on the ground, donate to the American Red Crossthrough their website or by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.

The Humane Society of the United States is assembling workers and equipment to help animals hurt in Hurricane Sandy. Their website gives information on how to help. Also, the ASPCA is delivering crates, food and other supplies to evacuation centers in the affected areas. Visit their website to donate in support of their efforts.

Again, The Seed team extends our deepest sympathies for those who were less fortunate than us. Our roots are firmly planted in the resilient city of New York.
