“I am so happy to be here today and welcome you all to Alhambra. I think it is time for me to go green by looking at my body size. Hope more people here in Alhambra can get to know Green Menu. It is still Chinese New Year and hope your organization can have a brand new start and a very successful one”, said Councilperson Stephen Sham, City of Alhambra.
“Green Menu has begun a new chapter today, to continue striving hard to inspire and promote healthy lifestyles and a greener environment through plant-based diets. We are a member-based organization that offers the public the opportunity to go green and make a difference in our community”, said Alice Chou, Green Menu event organizer.
Green Menu intends to use this new space to hold future Green Menu sponsored events.
