Other views: Know how that chicken got to your table?

… covering chickens — which account for 96% of the animals slaughtered — focus on food safety, not cruelty. If a chicken is scalded to death in the production process, government inspectors won’t necessarily intervene. About 700,000 birds — albeit a tiny fraction of the nearly 9 billion slaughtered — died by scalding in 2013. None of this is necessary.

Vegetarianism a growing trend: 7 kinds of vegetarians you may encounter at a restaurant – The Economic Times

… isn’t social churn enough, what is? Vegetarians in restaurant-going India may have always felt somewhat ostracised for eating ‘ghaasphoos’, marginalised by menus dishing out only paneer and aloo in ten avatars each, but they now seem to be having the last laugh.

… spared, 1,950 pounds of meat not consumed, and 16,090 pounds of carbon dioxide kept from entering the atmosphere. The data is based on USDA statistics for the average amount of meat consumed per capita. Obviously, the calculator neglects some key variables—a hardcore carnivore is going to have a greater impact by stopping incessant meat eating than a more naturally veggie-inclined diner, for example—but it seems like the website would rather focus on the bigger picture than mince numbers. …

The 7 Types of Vegetarians, Because There’s More Than One Way Not To Fry a Fish | Bustle

Here’s a light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek look at vegetarianism: I dipped my toe into the vegetarian pond the summer before my sophomore year of college. I had just seen Food Inc. for the first time (an emotional cinematic experience for my 19-year-old self) and was ready to make a Life Change.

… and if I didn’t know, there is no way I’d have guessed it was an animal produce free cake. I admit, I was beyond impressed.

With a focus on community, the cafe is a drop off point for Falkirk Foodbank and operates a suspended coffee scheme, allowing customers to buy food and drinks which are given to those less fortunate.
