Petas Fashion Week Bash At Stella McCartney

Alexis Stewart, the vegetarian daughter of Martha Stewart and co-host of Whatever Radio, has been active in animal rights and vegetarianism before. Now she’s at it again, hosting the Farm Forward Launch party in her own home and feeding guest with vegan treats.

Farm Forward is an organization that wishes to move away from the practice of factory farming and toward smaller family owned farms that care for the animals better, and encourages more sustainable agricultural practices.

The launch party attendees  included Alexis and her mother Martha, as well as novelist Jonathan Safran Foer, who is a Farm Forward Board Member. Foer joked that he has tried to go vegetarian several times and coining an old phrase Mark Twain used about smoking, he said “it’s easy to go vegetarian, I’ve done it dozens of times.”

Although members of it’s Executive staff are vegan, Farm Forward is aiming to create better lives for the animals that will be eventually slaughtered, according to Aaron Gross, one executive staff member.

Vegan hors d’oeuvres were served and Alexis baked her very own vegan cookies.
