Senator Cory Booker Serves Congress Members a Vegan Feast
Senator Cory Booker treated members of the Congressional Black Caucus to a vegan feast fit for royalty last week. The plant-based fare was lovingly made by DC Vegan Catering and was an overwhelming hit for most of the 44 congress members in attendance. Some of the favorite dishes were mac and cheese, buffalo cauliflower, and sushi. The vegan senator commented on his reasons for supplying the cruelty-free meal:
“Black Americans’ health data and disparities are stunning, with rates of heart failure 20 times that of whites and rates of diabetes almost two times that of whites.”
The esteemed officials mostly raved about the food – including Rep. Danny Davis (IL), who said “I think this takes the cake” after sharing that he comes from the “food capital of America,” a.k.a. Chicago. The only dissenter in the Facebook video Senator Booker posted to his page capturing the event was Rep. Marcia Fudge (OH), who commented on wanting some meat in her meal, yet that the food was “not as bad as I thought it was going to be.” We’ll take that as a compliment!
