Join us as we watch Mercy for Animals gripping new 12 minute film exposing the treatment of animals before they reach consumers' plates.
Farm to Fridge goes behind the closed doors of the nation's largest industrial poultry, pig, dairy and fish farms, hatcheries, and slaughter plants - revealing the often-unseen journey that animals make from Farm to Fridge. Using footage from undercover investigations by Mercy For Animals and other non-profit groups, Farm to Fridge shows viewers agricultural practices that are industry standard, acceptable, defended by farmers, and deemed legal in most states - yet unknown to most Americans.
Time: May 20, 2011 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: Minneapolis, exact location TBA
Compassionate Action for Animals invites you to a screening of the film.
Position Description and Objectives
Compassionate Action for Animals (CAA) is offering a volunteer staff position for Food Giveaway Coordinator. Candidates must be organized, outgoing, have some general knowledge of vegan food products, and have excellent communication skills. Experience in outreach, event planning and logistics, volunteer coordination, and food preparation are desired. Candidates should be passionate about animal advocacy and veganism.
One part of our long-term strategy at CAA is to help build a bigger and stronger animal advocacy movement. With each new person that embraces the values of veganism, thousands of animals are saved over the course of that person's lifetime, and even more through the additional people that person influences. As the movement grows, the numbers of animals we can help will increase exponentially.
At CAA we realize that tasting is believing and when people get a chance to try vegan foods, they'll seek out more in the future.

Vegetarianism began sweeping the nation during the 1970s, and has grown over the years. Today, as more and more people increase their awareness of food industry practices, a community of vegans is expanding in which people embrace compassion towards animals, and speak out against the current of farm animals. KFAI's Mahi Palanisami talked with two Twin Cities locals (and CAA volunteers) about what it's like to be vegan.
