Group's Offer Includes Free Delicious, Healthy, Cruelty-Free Lunch for Students and Faculty at One of Cleveland's Schools

Cleveland -- In response
to reports of the $13 million gap in Cleveland's public school budget, PETA has
sent a letter to Cleveland Metropolitan School District CEO Eric Gordon with a
suggestion that could help the district's budget, its students' health, and
animals on factory farms all at the same time: Open the schools' cafeteria
lunch trays to paid advertisements, and PETA will kick off the effort with a pro-vegan
features the group's chick mascot and reads, "I Am Not a Nugget. Go
Vegan!" In the letter, PETA explains that kids who choose vegan meals are
significantly healthier than their meat-eating counterparts—and that every
person who goes vegan saves more than 100 animals a year.
"PETA's proposal is a win-win situation for Cleveland's schools,"
says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "The school's budget will
get a nudge toward the black, and students will learn an important message
about compassion that could also inspire them to start choosing fiber-rich,
nutrient-packed vegan meals over artery-clogging meat and dairy products."
According to the late child-health expert Dr. Benjamin Spock,
"Children who grow up getting their nutrition from plant foods rather than
meats have a tremendous health advantage. They are less likely to develop
weight problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, and some forms of cancer."
PETA has also offered a free vegan lunch—complete with protein-packed
and cholesterol-free faux-chicken nuggets, vegan chili, and corn on the cob—to
the students and faculty at one of Cleveland's schools.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
