Vegetarian since 1984. I actually first started in 1974 but I was just a kid and it took a while for me to make the complete change.
In 1974, I heard about McDonalds being fined for using cancerous meat in their burgers. That made me start thinking about what I was eating. In[masked] I just felt it was right and couldn't eat animals.
Lately, I have been eating veggie dogs with rice and tapatio sauce. I love red bell peppers stuffed with rice and beans. I am going to get hungry answering this question...
It is difficult to say without knowing how active this group is. I don't know if you are a social group that just dines together and talks about things or if you actually stage protests. There is no shortage of animals that need help. The more people working on it, the more help they get.
