How does the routine act of picking up a fork and eating a meal become transformed into a gesture that bestows the promise of a better world to future generations? Try eating a vegan meal.

The United States imports about 200,000,000 pounds of meat from Latin America a year. Millions of acres of forestland must be cleared to feed the livestock that is slaughtered to maintain this meat habit. The grain and soybeans used to feed livestock in the United States could feed 1,300,000,000 human beings a year, but every two seconds a child dies of starvation. In total, sixty million people will starve to death this year.
