Steven and his classmates go on a field trip to a local farm sanctuary. While there Steven's classmates learn that he is a vegan. Steven, along with many of the farm animals, teach his friends why for him, animals are his friends, not his food. Each day more children are being introduced to the concept of the vegan lifestyle. The idea of not eating meat, or drinking milk may open a child up to ridicule and harassment. Steven the Vegan gives these children ideas on how to deal with the situation, and how to explain why animals are friends, not food.
