Jacksonville, Florida. – This Tuesday, approximately 160 students of TDH Christian Academy will enjoy a special thank youLiving lunch – filled with vegan roasts and vegetarian sides, including dairy-free mac and cheese, courtesy of a local restaurant Kravegan– courtesy of the educator N / A’ Robertson and TeachKind, the human education division of PETA. Ahead of the school-wide event, Robertson students will bring home ready-to-roast vegan turkeys for their families’ Thanksgiving tables.

When: Tuesday, November 22, 11:45 a.m.

Where: TDH Christian Academy, 440 Lenox Sq., Jacksonville

To help students understand that bird-friendly fares are the perfect choice for a compassionate vacation, Robertson will also lead activities related to “ThanksVeganlike reading It was the night before Thanksgiving-a humorous yet heartwarming tale about a group of children who save a flock of turkeys before Thanksgiving.

“Young people love animals, and they would be horrified to learn the fear and pain that 45 million turkeys endure every year before they end up on a Thanksgiving table,” says Marta Holmberg, PETA Senior Director of Youth Programs. “TeachKind is thrilled to give TDH students the opportunity to spare turkeys and share good, healthy vegan roasts with loved ones.”

Not only are vegan roasts free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol, but they also save animals immense suffering: turkeys can live up to 10 years, but those raised for food are usually slaughtered as babies between 14 and 18 weeks. In the wild, turkeys are now considered caring parents, good travelers and spirited explorers.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human supremacist worldview, and offers a Thank youVegan menu guide filled with recipes, shopping tips and more.
