Vegan Society pushes Tofurkey for Thanksgiving

Pierce College’s Vegan Society will host an event called “Eat Tofurkey, Not Turkey!” on Tuesday, Nov. 18, to spread awareness about the Thanksgiving-turkey alternative.

Tofurkey is a brand of turkey substitute that is made from wheat protein and tofu by Oregon-based company Turtle Island Foods.

The club will offer free samples of Tofurkey sandwiches, and will give away Tofurkey coupons and vegan starter guides.

There will also be a club member dressed in a turkey costume.

The “Eat Tofurkey, Not Turkey!” event is on Tuesday, Nov. 18, from 10:30 a.m. to around 12:30 p.m. on the Mall.
