New York Times Essay Contest: The New York Times has a contest to write an article of less than 600 about why it’s ethical to eat meat. The winner gets his/her essay published in the Times. The deadline is April 8. Go to the website for more details.
Stop Pink Slime: Jamie Oliver and his Food Revolution team have launched a campaign called Stop Pink Slime. You can go to their website StopPinkSlime.org and sign a petition to tell the USDA to stop using pink slime as a filler in ground beef. Already Safeway, Costco, Whole Foods, Burger King, McDonald’s, and Taco Bell have stopped using the tainted substance in their meat because of the news. With a campaign, we can further the cause even more.
