Vancouver – During the Monday lunch rush—and because A&W just started offering vegan chicken nuggets on a trial basis in addition to already offering the Beyond Burger nationwide—members of PETA and the Vancouver Vegan Resource Centre Group will pass out the nuggets outside the A&W on W. Broadway to promote the new animal-free option.

When:    Monday, December 9, 12 noon

Where:    467 W. Broadway (at the intersection with Cambie Street), Vancouver

“These dunkable delights outshine boring old chicken nuggets in every way,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA says ‘dig in’ to diners and urges A&W to make these delicious vegan nuggets a menu mainstay, just as it’s done with the popular Beyond Burger.”

Each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat industry—and they help combat climate change and deforestation, as more than 80% of the Amazon rainforest that’s been cleared since 1970 is used for meat production.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit

“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
