Residents of a Coventry care home are enjoying eating vegan this January! Diners are benefiting from vibrant plant-based meals, which contain no saturated animal fat or cholesterol.
With veganism becoming one of the UK’s fastest growing lifestyle movements, Hannah Mulholland, activities coordinator at Harper Fields care home in Coventry, who previously introduced residents to the plant-based diet by holding a vegan festival, has encouraged residents to go vegan this January for Veganuary.
Not only are residents being treated to delicious vegan meals all month long, as an added benefit to animals, Harper Fields’ Christmas gifts for residents this year were cruelty-free: the shaving, spa, and skincare products were not tested on animals, and the slippers, hats, and scarves were made from animal-free materials.
She described the experience so far as follows:
“Our brilliant kitchen staff have shown how easy it is to offer residents meals that are healthy, cruelty-free, and delicious. We look forward to seeing our residents enjoy all the benefits of plant-based meals, including a higher fibre intake and a boost in energy.”
PETA have awarded the care home PETA’s Proggy Award (“Proggy” is for “progress”), recognising animal-friendly achievements in commerce and culture.
“Diners of all ages can benefit from vibrant vegan meals, which contain no saturated animal fat or cholesterol”, says PETA Special Projects Manager Dawn Carr. “PETA is recognising Harper Fields for leading the industry and making plant-based food available to residents for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
