Holly Marie Combs, Joanna Krupa, Christen Press, and Fred Willard will join PETA, Animal Place sanctuary, and host John Salley on Saturday for a Super Bowl party at which chickens will be the guests of honor, not the food on the platter. Nearly 70 hens rescued from egg farms will relax in their own little football stadium as they wait for their pre-approved adoptive families to arrive, and two sexy “cheerleaders” will keep human guests supplied with vegan “wings,” chips and salsa, and other Super Bowl snacks.
Where: PETA’s Bob Barker Building, 2154 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles
When: Saturday, January 30, 2 p.m.
“PETA’s party is the one Super Bowl shindig where the chickens will arrive with their wings intact,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Not everyone can provide a sensitive, social chicken with an adoptive home, but we can all help these birds by choosing to snack on delicious vegan wings from Gardein or Beyond Meat.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—offers free vegan Super Bowl recipes on its website that can be whipped up for game-day fare that spares chickens the misery of a filthy, crowded poultry shed and the terror of having their throats slit in a slaughterhouse. It’s estimated that some 600 million chickens are killed each year for the wings consumed just during the Super Bowl. That’s 1.25 billion chicken wings, according to The Huffington Post.
