Over the course of November, Viva! teamed up with Million Dollar Vegan to provide and distribute 2,000 vegan meals. As the country went into a second lockdown, Viva! was dropping off meals at various different charities and shelters to help people who had been severely impacted by the pandemic. We joined forces with Alice at Kabala Kitchen, a local, independent vegan caterer who worked tirelessly to prepare hundreds of freshly-made curries. At the same time, we gave away hundreds of tins of vegan meals such as mac’n’cheese and vegan meatballs so that charities had vegan food supplies to last as long as possible over the winter.
It was extremely rewarding to be able to help those in need as much as we could over this difficult time, and several of the charities we worked with were really pleased to have vegan food delivered to them so that they were able to cater for the vegetarians and vegans who relied on their services while also providing people with healthy meals.
What we eat has a major impact on our health, on animal suffering, and our world. 3 in 4 of all emerging or new diseases come from animals. Going vegan is an incredibly powerful way to help prevent future pandemics while also protecting animals and our health.
