REDWOOD CITY, CA — A local nonprofit group has donated vegan groceries to families and seniors throughout Redwood City.

Vegan Outreach brought groceries to 95 families and 20 seniors at the Casa de Redwood Senior Home last week.

The delivery included stockings stuffed with chocolates, nuts, popcorn, coffee and candy.

Vegan Outreach, which is based in Davis, promotes nonmeat diets on ethical grounds.

The group aims to end “violence towards animals” according to its website.

“We seek a future when sentient animals are no longer exploited as commodities,” the group’s website says.
