VegWeek 2011For the third year in a row, Compassion Over Killing hosted VegWeek in April, a week-long celebration encouraging others to take 7-day veg pledge as a simple, yet effective way, to help protect their health, the planet and animals.

Launched in 2009 in our hometown of Takoma Park, MD, our  first-ever VegWeek was inspired by Md. Senator Jamie Raskin and officially recognized through a Mayoral Proclamation. Sen. Raskin was the first person to sign up for our one-week veg pledge—and it’s a pledge he’s kept to this day!

At the end of last year, Subway became the world’s largest restaurant chain, beating out McDonald’s by just over 1,000 stores.

For many vegans, the “Veggie Delight” is a convenient and affordable dining option—when dashing out to lunch, for a quick bite while traveling, or even for parties.

And while it’s great to have this option, oftentimes, vegans, vegetarians, and those looking for a more healthful alternative are left wanting something “meatier” to go with their sandwich, such as vegetarian turkey, chicken, or ham slices.
