Santa Clara, Calif. – After hearing that Sacred Heart Community Service had only one turkey for its annual holiday food program, PETA arranged for the delivery of more than 100 vegan Field Roast Celebration Roasts—hearty centerpiece dishes stuffed with butternut squash, apples, and mushrooms.

“PETA is eager to help Sacred Heart extend the holiday spirit of giving to gentle turkeys,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Since millions of Americans now enjoy a meat-free holiday for health, religious, environmental, or animal-welfare reasons, vegan roasts are a perfect fit for any Thanksgiving feast.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that eating vegan spares 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 packed with protein and free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol.
