Silver Spring, Md. – On Saturday, U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin joined PETA members at Tommy’s Pantry in Silver Spring, Maryland, and passed out 150 bags packed with vegan roasts and fresh produce to encourage people to enjoy “ThanksVegan” this year and keep turkeys off their plates.
“It brings our family a lot of joy to be part of this collaboration between Tommy’s Pantry and PETA to share a beautiful vegan Thanksgiving option with people in our community,” says Raskin. “More and more Americans are eating sustainably while caring for animals and the planet, thanks to initiatives like ‘ThanksVegan’ from PETA and Tommy’s Pantry. It’s a great pleasure to start the holiday season this way.”
