Get Active for This Year's Great American Meatout!

coty_cow.jpgOn and around March 20th - 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.

Mercy For Animals, an official sponsor of the Great American Meatout, will be joining advocates worldwide by hosting vegan feed-ins and educational outreach events in Illinois, New York, Ohio and Texas.

What will you be doing to educate your community on March 20th? Check out MFA's Campaign page for more info on holding your own feed-in or leafleting event, hosting a tabling event, screening MFA's new film Farm to Fridge or creating a library display. Click here for support materials and resources to inform consumers of the health, ethical and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet.

Help MFA make this year's Meatout the greatest yet, by committing to encourage at least one person to reject animal cruelty and adopt a plant-based diet! The average person eats about 27 land animals per year, adding up to thousands in a lifetime.
