Each issue of Vegetarian Journal features the column Veggie Action where we feature an outstanding vegan activist. Most recently we highlighted the good work being done by Marcy Schveibinz, a certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) in Columbia, MD.
After reaching out to The Vegetarian
Resource Group for volunteer opportunities, Marcy Schveibinz, was given the
chance to teach a vegan cooking class at Christopher Place Employment Academy.
A division of The Catholic Charities of Baltimore, Christopher Place Employment
Academy helps formerly homeless men with job training and provides a support
system including addiction recovery, counseling, and life skills.
Marcy teaches her cooking class once a
week for eight weeks to a group of 8 to 14 men. Her curriculum explores
nutrition and healthy eating on a budget, and includes live recipe
demonstrations. The class, created through funds from a vegan donor, is
mandatory for all the men in the program.
“I like that I’m able to teach
people about something that’s so important to me,” Marcy said.
She focuses on simple meals that taste
good, especially familiar foods, like chili and stir-frys, which the men enjoy.
Her meals are based around the idea that vegan food can be easy and satisfying.
