For 10 years, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been involved in the Community Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway for local families. For the first time, Los Angeles Dodgers donate 100 vegan turkeys for Thanksgiving, donated by vegan food plant-based company Tofurky. The Turkeys, which are all made of vegan food productscontain wild rice stuffing. They will be collected by employees from the Dodgers organization at the Bob Barker building. Global animal rights organization PETA(People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) worked with the Dodgers to make the even vegan food friendly.
The number of vegans nationwide has soared over the past few years as people are becoming interested in vegan food. Stats show people moving towards vegan food skyrocketed by 600 percent in just 36 months. This is mainly because more vegan food options have become easily available. People are also becoming more health conscious about what products they put in there body as health studies are proving vegan foods products can be beneficial. Tofurky vegan food roast has no saturated animal fat, cholesterol, has amazing flavor along with an excellent source of protein and fiber. The popularity of Tofurky’s vegan food dish is growing right along with other plant-based foods. Jaime Athos, current president and CEO said the increased demand for plant-based vegan food options is really starting to impact the meat industry. Several of the top poultry brands have reported a decline in sales just weeks before Thanksgiving. The 90,000 pound turkey meat recall probably didn’t help. Just the opposite report came from Tofurky announcing in August that they’re set to sell it’s 5 millionth Tofurky vegan food holiday roast.
