Fayetteville, Arkansas. – To help healthcare providers fuel themselves as COVID-19 cases remain high in the country, PETA will deliver free vegan meals to the Washington Regional Medical Center on Wednesday. Served hot from the nearby Mellow Mushroom, marinated in tempeh balsamic sauce and pizza with vegetables should be a relief for the hardworking staff.
“All healthcare professionals in Fayetteville need support, which is why PETA gives them healthy and satisfying support,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “We want to brighten up some shifts, save some animals and remind everyone that plant foods have never caused a pandemic.”
PETA notes that 75% of recent infectious diseases in humans have been caused by other animal species. COVID-19 is believed to have originated in bat caves or live animal markets in China. In addition to helping prevent future pandemics, people who go vegan save the lives of nearly 200 animals every year and significantly reduce the risk of health problems, including stroke, cancer and heart disease.
PETA, whose motto is in part that “the animals are not ours to eat” – opposes arrogance, a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
