Vegan Feed-In Shows the Delicious Side of Activism

Members of Mercy For Animals handed out hundreds of free vegan food samples to passersby on the bustling Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago last Saturday.  A colorful banner invited shoppers and tourists to “Enjoy a Free Vegan Sample”  – exposing many of them to their fist taste of the mouthwatering alternatives to meat. The tofurky sandwiches, veg chicken nuggets, BBQ, and veggie hot dogs distributed during the event proved that adopting a healthy and humane vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to abandon your favorite flavors.
