Veggiecation in Korea!

Last year, we were presented with an incredible opportunity to expand our program to Korea through Montclair State University, Lisa’s alma mater. Up until that point, we hadn’t fully considered expanding outside of North America. We were already “veggiecating” Canada, which seemed to make sense geographically, culturally, and linguistically. And it’s for those reasons we had not seriously considered going as far as East Asia!


However, when opportunity comes knocking on your door, you better answer it – which is exactly what we did! The goal for implementing Veggiecation in Korea is to serve as nutrition fieldwork for students at a university, as well as, research the efficacy of the Veggiecation Program in Korean classroom settings.

The pilot program launched at the beginning of June and has been quite successful! Our Korean partners have translated our posters and created culturally relevant recipes for their students! Below are some of the pictures we were sent from our overseas Veggiecator Educators! See below and definitely make sure to watch this adorable slideshow.
