Vegan News – PETA to buy groceries for 10 single Memphis moms who go vegan


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering to buy groceries for 10 single Memphis mothers who pledge not to eat animal products for one month with their children.

PETA will provide “a large variety of vegan groceries, including grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and healthy snacks,” the organization said in a news release.

PETA also put up a billboard at Interstate 55 near South Third in South Memphis featuring a mother hen and her chicks. It reads, “Moms: When You Feed Your Family This Mother’s Day, Please Think About Mine. Go Vegan.”

“Vegan meals are a cost-effective and healthy way to feed human families, and they make a world of difference for animals, whose own children are taken from them, chopped into pieces, and served as food,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a written statement.

Memphis mothers who would like to participate can send a pledge to eat vegan for one month, along with a family photo by May 18 to PETA, Attn.: Mother’s Day, 501 Front St., Norfolk, VA 23510
