United Poultry Concerns World Farm Animals Day Table Appears in the Eastern Shore News, October 4, 2003

On October 2, 2003, United Poultry Concerns activists Karen Davis, Lisa and Bruce Glassco, and Joe Donahue staffed a successful animal rights vegetarian table with lots of food and literature at the Eastern Shore Community College in Melfa, Virginia. We microwaved soy “chicken nuggets” and gave out chickpea-macaroni salad, pasta salad, coleslaw, and other treats to students and teachers, along with free copies of Vegetarian Times, Why Vegan, UPC literature, and more! Our battery hen display attracted lots of attention, as did the UPC video “The Dignity, Beauty, and Abuse of Chickens.” It was a great day!
