PETA and Detroit official team up to distribute free vegan food Saturday

In an effort to get healthy food to more Detroit residents, animal rights group PETA is joining forces with Detroit City Council President Pro Tem James Tate to distribute food at Christian Fellowship of Love Baptist Church Saturday.

Tate will give away vegan chickpea “toona” wraps from Detroit business Estella’s Vegan Cuisine & Desserts as well as pints of JD’s Vegan Ice Cream, donated by music producer Jermaine Dupri.

City Council President Pro Tem James Tate speaks during a news conference in August. Tate is teaming up with PETA to distribute food from Detroit business Estella's Vegan Cuisine & Desserts on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The distribution will be at noon Saturday at the church, which is at 22400 Grand River in Detroit.

“The COVID-19 pandemic threw the undeniable reality of America’s food insecurities into sharp relief,” says Tate in a media alert. “Together with PETA, we can help address some of the issues disproportionately affecting communities of color, including by making fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy fare accessible for all.”
