Gardein Garden Protein

VegenaiseGardein veggie meats have become wildly popular and are now available in most major supermarkets. High in protein, low in fat, and packed with goodness -- Gardein is good for you and kind to animals (no animal-derived ingredients!). Try any or all of over two dozen products like recipe-ready Chick'n Strips and Meatless Meatballs, plate-ready Chick'n Scallopini and BBQ Riblets, and kid-pleasers like Sloppy Joes and Crispy Chick'n Tenders.

Find a Meetup Community!

Most people live and thrive in community.  We love our families and friends.  We join clubs and teams.  We attend concerts and sporting events.  We meet on playgrounds and at community centers, at the movies, places of worship, bars and clubs.  We eat, play, love, laugh, and cry in groups of two to uncountable crowds.

A fun way to explore plant-based living is to find a community of like-minded, caring people.  And a quick way to do that is through Meetup.com

There are vegan Meetup groups sprouting up all over the world.  Gatherings include community potlucks, restaurant outings, movie nights, family-oriented get-togethers, advocacy events, and more. You don't have to be vegan to attend. In fact, Meetups offer a perfect opportunity to find answers and support while exploring and enjoying plant-based foods with new friends.

Visit Vegan.Meetup.com to find a group near you. 
If there isn't a group near you, consider starting one. 


Mercy For Animals

Nathan Runkle is the Founder and Executive Director of Mercy For Animals (MFA). Raised on a farm in rural Ohio, he has long had a deep connection to farmed animals. In 1999, after a local farmed animal abuse case involving a piglet killed during an agriculture project at a nearby high school, Nathan founded MFA to give farmed animals a much-needed advocate in his community.

Nathan says he made the connection between his beloved dog Sadie, for whom he would do anything to protect from harm, and the farmed animals who cannot escape the horrors of animal agribusiness. He realized that by going vegan, he could be part of the solution.  He says, “I came to understand that every time I sat down to eat I was making a choice that would not only affect my own health, but have a profound impact on the lives of animals."

MFA has since become a national force fighting for the respectful and compassionate treatment of farmed animals. Mercy For Animals is a proud sponsor of the upcoming Animal Rights 2012 National Conference taking place August 2-5 just outside of Washington, DC.
