Los Angeles – This year, for the first time ever, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Community Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway will include 100 delicious, cholesterol-free Tofurky roasts with wild-rice stuffing—and on Thursday, members of the Dodgers organization will stop by PETA’s Bob Barker Building to pick up the vegan entrées, generously donated by Tofurky.

When:    Thursday, November 15, 5 p.m.

Where:    PETA’s Bob Barker Building, 2154 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles

“PETA is eager to help the Dodgers extend the holiday spirit of giving to gentle turkeys and vegan fans,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Since millions of Americans now enjoy a meat-free holiday for animal rights, health, religious, or environmental reasons, offering a delicious Tofurky roast will be a grand slam.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that choosing Tofurky roasts spares turkeys the agony of being crammed into filthy warehouses and electrocuted before their throats are slit, often while they’re still conscious. Vegan holiday roasts are also packed with protein and free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol.

Photos will be available after the event. For more information, including free vegan recipes and a free vegan starter kit, please visit PETA.org.

“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
