Care-Home Residents Try Vegan for January

Posted by on January 10, 2017 | Permalink

Residents of a Coventry care home are enjoying eating vegan this January! Diners are benefiting from vibrant plant-based meals, which contain no saturated animal fat or cholesterol.

Hannah Mulholland, the care home’s activities coordinator, spearheaded the vegan effort, using PETA’s catering recipes and giving vegan starter kits to residents. She described the experience so far as follows:

Our brilliant kitchen staff have shown how easy it is to offer residents meals that are healthy, cruelty-free, and delicious. We look forward to seeing our residents enjoy all the benefits of plant-based meals, including a higher fibre intake and a boost in energy.

Hannah also organised a vegan festival at the care home last November, garnering rave reviews and facilitating the decision to offer vegan meals this month. For these reasons, we’re proud to award the care home PETA’s Proggy Award (“Proggy” is for “progress”), recognising animal-friendly achievements in commerce and culture.

In addition to sparing many animals every year the horrors of the abattoir, vegans are less prone to suffering from cancer, obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are. They also have a smaller carbon footprint. These are just some of the reasons why millions of British people are going vegan and why the number of requests for PETA’s free vegan starter kit increases every year. Try it for yourself:
