Avery Kamila went vegan in 1991 after reading “Diet for a New America,” while she was a freshman at Syracuse University. For more than a decade she’s been writing about vegan food for the largest newspaper in Maine, and in 2018 a column she wrote caused the city schools to add vegan hot lunch options. Recently, she’s been researching the history of vegetarianism in her home state and uncovered a rich past full of meat-free and plant-based eating that has been ignored and buried for more than 100 years.
