Fresno, Calif. – To assuage people’s fears that the minimal changes for pigs introduced by the passage of the Farm Animal Confinement Initiative (Proposition 12) may lead to a “bacon shortage,” PETA supporters will hoof it to Fresno on Saturday to hand out vegan breakfast sandwiches stacked with delicious fakin’ bacon and egg-less scrambles from local food truck Plant Slayer. They’ll remind people that there’s more than enough delicious, animal-friendly vegan food to go around—including smoky vegan bacon.
When: Saturday, August 21, 10 a.m.
Where: At the intersection of Tuolumne and Fulton streets, Fresno
“Thanks to brands like Lightlife and Beyond Meat, there’s no shortage of pig- and planet-saving vegan bacon,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is encouraging people to take advantage of all the fantastic animal-friendly food items on grocery store shelves today.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
