If you belong to an animal protection organization that is still serving animal products, urge your group to adopt an ethically consistent meal plan. Please let us know that your group has adopted the Vegan Meals Only Policy so that we can add your group to the growing list of organizations dedicated to the ethical treatment of all animals. Signatory groups will be published in forthcoming issues of PoultryPress.
