Toast restaurant in Shadyside has been selling a 5 course foie gras dinner this week in honor of Restaurant Week-5 courses of foie gras including a foie gras donut for dessert! They are selling this despite a pledge statement they signed with Voices for Animals on May 20, 2009, that they would no longer sell foie gras at Toast. Please come out and show Toast how appalled we are that they not only went back on their agreement, but that they would sell 5 courses of a product that is produced with so much egregious cruelty that it is banned in over 12 countries and the state of California.

We will be protesting/leafleting in front of Toast on Friday, August 16th, at 7 PM. We will have signs and leaflets available. Please come out and speak up for the ducks and geese and let Toast know that we want them to recommit to no longer sell foie gras permanently!
