CAF's Meatless Monday info table at Earth Day fest at Countyside Church , Palatine IL,
|CAF's info table, with free Tofurky and Sunshine burger samples...|

Furthermore, reducing our overall meat, dairy, and egg consumption promotes the well-being of our soil, water, and atmosphere - CAFOs are one of the biggest contributors to water, soil, and air pollution in the U.S. Not to mention moving toward a more plant-based diet is extremely beneficial for one's overall health.
|Tofurky and Gardein coupons, and UUAM and Meatless Monday brochures|
|We are grateful to Tofurky for their generous supply of coupons for free Tofurky products to hand out for sampling.|
