Everything's Bigger in Texas -- Except Meat

Mike-Rawlings1.jpgFormer Pizza Hut CEO and current Dallas Mayor, Mike Rawlings, wants his Texas town to ditch meat. According to "Dallas News," in honor of the Great American Meatout, Rawlings has signed a proclamation asking residents to ditch meat for the day, in favor of delicious, plant-based alternatives.

On and around March 20 -- the first day of spring -- thousands of caring people all over the world will host events to educate their communities and ask their friends, families, and neighbors to "kick the meat habit" and explore a plant-based diet.

Mayor Rawling's proclamation, which was signed last Wednesday, promotes Meatout as "a wholesome diet of vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains that promotes health and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases that affect 1.3 million Americans annually."

Help MFA make this year's Meatout the greatest yet, by encouraging at least one person to reject animal cruelty and adopt a plant-based diet! The average person eats about 32 land animals per year, adding up to thousands in a lifetime.
