, a former teacher. “Our food choices matter--not only for our own health and the health of our planet, but for the animals who want their lives every bit as much as we want ours.”

PS 244 partnered with the New York Coalition for Healthy School Food to test recipes and create kid-friendly school breakfast and lunch menus. “We believed that, if we taught kids to make healthy choices, it would help them to grow as students and well-rounded children,” explained Principal Robert Groff. Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott hopes to expand the initiative to other schools.

Catskill Animal Sanctuary has saved over 2,500 animals—from horses to chickens—since its inception, and exponentially more than that by supporting people in adopting a plant-based diet. Founder Kathy Stevens and her message of “kindness to all” have been featured in media including the New York Times, Good Morning America (CBS) and NBC Nightly News. Kathy is a blogger on farm animal issues for the Huffington Post and the author of the critically and commercially successful Where the Blind Horse Sings. Her latest book, Animal Camp: Reflections on a Decade of Love, Hope, and Veganism at Catskill Animal Sanctuary, has just been released.
