Atlanta – Hip-hop legend Jermaine Dupri will join PETA, the Southwest Ecumenical Emergency Assistance Center (SWEEAC), and celebrity friends like Dynasty star Elaine Hendrix as they serve delicious vegan meals—including roasted vegan turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, and pumpkin pie—to families and folks in need on Saturday, in honor of Thanksgiving. Tofurky Roasts will also be given away.
When: Saturday, November 23, 3:30 p.m.
Where: West Hunter Street Baptist Church, 1040 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd., Atlanta
“I’ve been vegan for over a decade, and for me, there’s nothing better for feeling your best and knowing you’re helping the planet and animals,” says Dupri. “The holidays are about the spirit of giving, and PETA and I want to give people in Atlanta a Thanksgiving meal that’s healthy, humane, and delicious.”
PETA notes that vegan holiday meals—which are free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol—spare turkeys the agony of being crammed into filthy warehouses and electrocuted before their throats are slit, often while they’re still conscious.
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 PETA.org.
