In 2009, he denied he would become one. But he may have changed his mind.
From the Riverfront Times:
Late yesterday afternoon, Local Harvest Cafe & Catering (3137 Morganford Road; 314-772-8815) announced via its Facebook page that it will cater a vegan dinner for Gore and his staff on Saturday evening.
Curious to learn more, Gut Check called Local Harvest co-owner Patrick Horine.
Our first question: Wait, is Al Gore vegan?
Horine wasn’t sure if Gore has adopted a totally vegan diet, but he did say the former VP requested a vegan, nut-free and oil-free menu.
“One of his staff members contacted us last week about his visit to St. Louis,” Horine says. “They had some fairly precise dietary restrictions, told us what they were and asked us to come back with a menu. We did and they approved it.”
