THE PROVEG RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
ProVeg is raising awareness around establishing plant-based eating as a risk-mitigation strategy for zoonotic diseases worldwide
By exploring the crucial connection between the current crisis and our animal-based food system, the ProVeg Food & Pandemics Report highlights how our food choices help to create a recipe for zoonotic pandemics.
Our mission to reduce animal consumption and transform the global food system is more relevant than ever – among many other benefits, it is also a risk-prevention strategy for future pandemics. Because in today’s world, eating animals is a high-risk behavior. With your help, we will educate change-makers across the world in order to highlight the clear connection between our outdated food system and the current crisis.
