Breaking News: Vegan Pizza
After working with Vegan Outreach, two pizzerias are experimenting with vegan cheese!
This week, popular Denver pizzeria Lala’s Wine Bar + Pizzeria added Daiya vegan cheese to their menu. And in even bigger pizza news, regional pizza chain WisePies Pizza & Salad is now testing out vegan cheese at their Tempe, Arizona, location!
The demand for vegan cheese options in pizza restaurants is growing, and we’re excited to be a part of the movement!

Steady rain and snow all day at the University of Vermont didn’t stop a great group of volunteers from giving a voice to animals. Alex Bonfiglio is starting a veg group on campus and today she heard from a bunch of students interested in joining. Margaret Arzon is a grad student who helped for the second time (first time was last semester). Sharon MacNair has been active for years with a group called Green Mountain Animal Defenders. Olivia Marelic [below, right] and Emma Schoeppner [below, left] came by between their classes to give leafleting a try.
Sharon told me her group has had volunteers in the past who mentioned they went veg after getting a leaflet on campus. Alex heard from someone who said he still has his leaflet from years ago and it’s helped him be vegan ever since.
I’m so thankful for these volunteers making it a really great day!

Today I met DyJahashon [below], who is studying theater at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. After I gave him a Compassionate Athlete leaflet, he came back to tell me he’s going to start eating vegan. The leaflet from Vegan Outreach was the final push after he had seen a lot of people on Instagram who looked healthier by going vegan.
