May Event Details

On Friday, May 22, the Humboldt Vegetarian Society will host a vegan potluck and free screening of the film, The Emotional World of Farm Animals, at the Humboldt Area Foundation, 373 Indianola Road in Bayside.

This event is open to the public and is free of charge. Attendees are welcome to attend either the potluck or film screening alone, or enjoy the entire evening. Potluck participants should bring one vegan dish to share and their own plates, cups, and utensils. (Vegan means no animal products, including meat, fish, dairy, eggs, honey, etc.) Dinner will begin at 6:00, followed by the film screening at 7:00.

The Emotional World of Farm Animals is a heart warming and thought provoking exploration of the emotional lives of animals that has aired nationally on PBS. The documentary is led by Jefferey Masson, author of When Elephants Weep, Dogs Never Lie About Love, and The Pig Who Sang to The Moon. The film is a coproduction of Animal Place and Earth View Productions.

Free child care will be provided.


  1. I really want to see this movie but I keep chickening out. If anyone who's seen it wants to rate it on an "animal movie sadness scale", I'd appreciate it!

  2. I didn't know we had a local veg society. Hooray!
