The Cape May County Library invites the public to join in “Vegan Curious Film Series” presented by Matt Wildman of the Vegetarian Society of South Jersey. This program will be from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Stone Harbor Library on the following days:

April 20th- Forks Over Knives Synopsis: Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.

April 27th - Cowspiracy Synopsis: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

May 4th- Peaceable Kingdom Synopsis: A riveting story of transformation and healing, PEACEABLE KINGDOM: THE JOURNEY HOME explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming culture and who have now come to question the basic premises of their inherited way of life.

The Vegetarian Society of South Jersey (VSSJ) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is:

• Educational: To educate the public on the benefits of a plant-based diet. Information is provided through literature, videos, cooking classes, and speakers.
• Social: To provide opportunities for people to meet, share meals, and to have fun.
• Supportive: To offer advice, encouragement, and friendship to those in transition to a vegetarian diet.

VSSJ supports anyone in transition to a plant-based diet, no matter what stage they have reached. We provide educational outreach and support to people from omnivore to vegan. Our social events are primarily plant-based, as we endeavor to have food and refreshments all attendees can enjoy. Group membership is probably closely split between vegan and vegetarian, with some (veg-friendly) omnivores.

  • Attendee must be 18 Years or older.

Programs that require registration will be marked on the calendar (online and print), in press releases, and on promotional posters. To ensure fairness, patrons who fail to appear for three (3) programs/classes will not be eligible for first time registration for a period of six months. Rather, these patrons will automatically be placed on the waiting list. If an opening is available, the said patron will be notified that he or she can attend. If a patron cannot attend a program/class, it is his or her responsibility to alert the library via its online registration or telephone at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the start of the program/class. If proper notice of cancellation is given, then the patron will not be moved out of good standing.
