Soy Happy Day

Today marks Soy Happy Day, a chance to encourage more veg-friendly meal options.

While it's true that many restaurants, entertainment venues, and even grocery-store hot bars are often not veg-friendly, there is one sure-fire way to spur change: ask for it! In 2001, actress Johanna McCloy became frustrated at the lack of vegetarian options offered at a baseball game and petitioned the concession manager for more meat-free options. This became the birth of Soy Happy Day, a special day McCloy founded to encourage and remind vegetarians everywhere that sometimes, as Ghandi said, "you must be the change that you wish to see in the world." This year, spend Soy Happy Day championing for more veg-friendly food in your community.
