Vegan Pizza at Occupy Protests

Vegan activist group Food Not Bombs is bringing vegan pizza to Occupy movements around the world.

Food Not Bombs, a volunteer-run organization that works to feed the hungry with veg food, has recently started a campaign to supply Occupy movement participants with vegan pizza. Co-founder Keith McHenry, who has fed people at 15 Occupations so far, says that FNB is working with local pizzerias to offer vegan pizza to protesters at a discounted price. The organization also accepts donations via its website to help fund the pizza program and its vegan kitchens at the occupations. He estimates that at least 5,000 volunteers have worked with occupations in the US and as far away as Sydney, Budapest, London, and Frankfurt. McHenry says, “Vegan food is really aligned with the Occupy movement because both are against the corporate structure, which exploits both animals and people.”
