We are making wonderful progress on the programming for our 2017 VegFest! We have 3 of our 4 speakers lined up and we on track to start taking early registrations the end of April.

Research shows that people eating a whole foods plant-based diet live longer, healthier lives and in many cases can even reverse the effects of many of the chronic diseases plaguing Alaskan’s today.

The theme for this years Alaska VegFest: The Transformative Power of Eating Plants
This year’s speakers: We are flying in 4 wonderful speakers:

2 Alaskan Speakers who’s personal lives were transformed by eating a plant-based diet after taking one of Delisa Renideo’s Nutrition and Cooking Classes.

Father Fred Bugarin – Began moving toward a plant-based diet in September 2011. Within the first 6 months he was off his diabetes medications, blood pressure came down and lost 40 pounds! “This lifestyle has broadened and deepened my consciousness and understanding of how my life choices fit into my spirituality and ministry; in effect, a whole life-style with a broader and deepened awareness.”

Anna Luby – November 17, 2009 Anna was 70 pounds over weight and had just been diagnosed with diabetes. She was working in a kidney dialysis center and knew about the horrible complications of having diabetes. Anna started her journey into eating a plant-based diet on March 2, 2010. Now she is back to her petite college weight and has reversed her diabetes!
