On (or around) March 20, thousands of caring people in all 50 U.S. states and two dozen other countries get active to host educational events for Meatout- the world's largest grassroots diet education campaign. Activists distribute free food, educate their communities, and ask their friends, families, and neighbors to "kick the meat habit” and explore a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

I've been meat-free since 1995 and vegan since 2004. I'm definitely a vegan-for-lifer; I can't imagine NOT being vegan! You can read my vegan story HERE.
If you're new to veg*nism, look for a Meatout event near you. It's a great way to get information and connect with other veg*ns, and learn that there's plenty to eat without choosing meat! This is true even while traveling: click HERE to see my most memorable meals of 2010.
