Silver Spring, Maryland – On Saturday, Rep. Jamie Raskin will join PETA in handing out bags filled with the ingredients for a bountiful “ThanksVegan” feast (including vegan roasts and fresh produce) in honor of her late son, Tommy Raskinlong-time vegan and defender of animal rights.

When: Saturday November 12, 10 a.m

Where: Tommy’s Pantry, 630 Silver Spring Ave. (between Carroll Lane and Schrider Street), Silver Spring

The giveaway follows news that 12 former employees of Plainville Farms, a self-described “humane” turkey supplier to major grocers, were recently charged with more than 140 counts of animal cruelty after from PETA research, one of the many reasons, along with health and the environment, why more people than ever will be looking for animal-free food for the holidays this year.

“With the help of Representative Jamie Raskin, we are excited to help local families with their Thanksgiving meals,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA encourages everyone to leave tender turkeys off their plates this holiday season and every day.”

Everyone who goes vegan reduces their risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other diseases; reduces your carbon footprint; and saves nearly 200 animals a year from suffering and terrifying deaths. Turkeys raised for food are usually slaughtered when they are 14 to 18 weeks old, and more than 45 million turkeys are killed each year for Thanksgiving alone.

PETA—whose slogan reads, in part, that “animals are not for us to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, visit or follow the group Twitter, Facebookor Instagram.
