This year as you plan your holiday meal, consider the animal that is so often at the center of the table. What do we know about it? How was it raised? What was it fed? How was it killed? Is it even possible to find these things out?
Are the answers to these questions in line with your values, your family's values and the values we are celebrating during the holiday season?
If our holiday meals are supposed to serve as a reflection of our gratefulness, can a turkey that spends its life crammed by the tens of thousands into giant warehouses, on antibiotics, that has been bred to suffer-as is true for more than 99% of turkeys sold in America-be the choice we feel best about?
This holiday season, consider the turkey. Take this conversation in any direction you'd like. The most important thing is that our choices be deliberate.
There's nothing more powerful than an informed conversation.
