Texas Police Officers Handed Out Tofurky for Christmas

Fort Worth officers swapped turkey for Tofurky to treat citizens to cruelty-free holiday meals.

On Wednesday, police officers in Fort Worth, TX handed out free Tofurky dinners to passersby at Sundance Square. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals contacted the officers after learning that they gave away free turkeys during traffic stops before Thanksgiving and asked them to instead give away Tofurky for Christmas. “Always being a department that wants to reach out into our community,” Fort Worth Police Sergeant Marc Povero explained, “we said sure.” After the event, Povero sampled his first plant-based burger at local vegan eatery Spiral Diner and exclaimed, “I thought I was going to have to douse it with hot sauce. But it's delicious just like it is.” The sergeant—who comes from a family of butchers—revealed he would be serving a Tofurky roast during the holidays this year.
