Helping Make a Difference–One Vegan Pancake at a Time

Published by PETA.

The following is a guest post from peta2’s Lara.

Greetings from our nation’s capital! Pop quiz: What do Michelle Obama and PETA have in common? No, it’s not our toned biceps. Yes, we are both anti-fur, but that’s not what I’m getting at either. It’s that we both have volunteered with a great organization called Miriam’s Kitchen. Miriam’s Kitchen is a D.C.-based nonprofit that provides free meals and support services to homeless people.

Since PETA is relatively new to the neighborhood, we wanted to pitch in and help out the community. And what better way to do that than with vegan pancakes?


Great aprons and smiles, guys.


Today, we had the great opportunity to prepare and serve the first vegan breakfast in Miriam’s Kitchen history.

On the menu:

At first, the vegan breakfast was met with some skepticism, but afterwards, the empty plates spoke for themselves. Here are some reviews from some of the people I spoke with:

“It’s actually good!”
“I wish they had soy milk every day. I am allergic to cow’s milk, and it tastes better.”
“They’re trying to makes us healthy up in here!”

Indeed we are.
