Forth Worth, Texas – What: PETA members wearing Santa hats will join members of the Fort Worth Police Department on Wednesday as they distribute free vegan Tofurky roasts. Police accepted PETA’s offer to donate the roasts for the department to give away, a proposal that came after officers handed out frozen turkeys instead of tickets to drivers in the run-up to Thanksgiving.
When: Wednesday, December 21, 12:30 p.m.
Where: Northeast corner of Main and Third streets, Fort Worth
“PETA hopes kind people everywhere will extend the holiday spirit of giving to animals by choosing tasty, cruelty-free vegan meals,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “A vegan roast is a delicious centerpiece for any table—and it didn’t cost a sensitive, gentle bird’s life.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that Tofurky roasts spare 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.
