Chicago – On St. Patrick’s Day, PETA supporters decked out in festive green top hats and shamrock pins will give away vegan corned beef sandwiches from Bergstein’s NY Delicatessen at Cornerstone Community Outreach.
When: Tuesday, March 17, 11 a.m.
Where: Cornerstone Community Outreach, 4628 N. Clifton Ave., Chicago
“There’s a delicious vegan option for any holiday, from Christmas to Passover to St. Patrick’s Day,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA hopes our small gift will help Cornerstone Community Outreach in its great work to help hungry people in Chicago.”
Every person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries and reduces their own risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Vegan meals are also greener, as animal agriculture is a leading producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that contribute to climate change.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
