It's Time For A Healthy, Meatless Option (Please!)
My name is Kathy Freston. I'm an author of books like Quantum Wellness: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness, and some of you may have seen me talking about healthy living and conscious eating with Ellen Degeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Oz, or others on television or in print. I've been fortunate enough to reach millions of people with a positive message, and with this petition I’m hoping to bring a positive change to America with a mainstream meatless option at McDonald’s! Adding plant-based protein options at McDonald's will appeal to workers out for a quick lunch, families with health-conscious members out to dinner, children on field trips, and anyone looking for something different than the current menu at McDonald’s where even the french fries contain beef flavoring (they don't in Europe, incidentally)! According to a recent survey, more than one-third of Americans already buy meat substitutes for reasons that range from health to ethics! So why not make a meatless option available at one of America’s favorite restaurant chains for everyone to enjoy? Healthy living should be about progress, not perfection, and this is an easy step that McDonald’s could be taking. Sales of meat substitutes in the U.S. bring in over $553 million a year and visionaries like Bill Gates of Microsoft and Evan Williams and Biz Stone of Twitter are helping fund some of the many meatless options in development for mass markets. Meanwhile competitors like Chipotle have new braised tofu Sofritas, Tropical Smoothie added vegan chicken strips, and Burger King has a veggie burger! That's not even getting into the fact that KFC has vegan chicken in Canada (really, try it!), Subway already has a veggie patty, and McDonald's Canada has veggie wraps! We Americans love a protein center to our meal, so veggies and salads alone (or even in a wrap) won’t do the trick; we want something hearty and protein-centric just like the burgers and sandwiches you already have, only with something plant-based instead. In September, McDonald's partnered with President Bill Clinton (who improved his own health by eating plant-based foods) and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to make some youth marketing improvements, but still left me and many members of the public wondering about people of all ages looking to lower cholesterol, reduce saturated fat intake, and cut calories. Offering an option that is completely without animal products is ideal, not only for those who don’t eat animal products for ethical reasons, but for those who are lactose intolerant or have egg allergies. Like many Americans, I’m over this "all or nothing" way of thinking by powerful decision makers in the government and in the corporate world. We need to work together to find positive ways to work towards common goals like eating healthier, farming sustainably, and treating animals with respect. In that spirit, one very simple step can come from fast food giant McDonald's adding a healthy, plant-based item to the menu in the United States. Truly, there can be something for everyone! Please sign my petition to support adding a healthy, meatless option at McDonald's.
Petition to Sonic Drive-In
Ask Sonic to add a tip option on electronic transactions at carhop stations.
I believe that income inequality is one of the greatest threats facing families across our country. Those in the food service industry typically earn low wages and often times they struggle to survive even with tips. I recently stopped at a Sonic Drive-In and used my debit card to pay because I had absolutely no cash on hand. I was unable to tip my carhop as a result because there is no option to do so. My food arrived and was delivered by a middle-aged woman who looked as though she had been working all day. This is unfair to her and others working at Sonic Drive-In establishments because most people no longer use cash when making purchases. I understand that the minimum wage needs to be adjusted and that is a cause that I will continue to embrace. However, in the meantime, the very least I can do is demand that companies like this take steps to ensure workers are able to adequately receive tips. Let's stand with Sonic workers! #FreeTheTips
Petition to Wendy's
Wendy's: We’re boycotting you until you support human rights for farmworkers!
For decades, farmworkers in the U.S. have faced physical and verbal abuse, daily threats to their health and safety, racial discrimination, wage theft and grinding poverty. Farmworkers also experience unconscionably high rates of sexual violence and harassment in the fields. In 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center found that 80% of farmworker women report that they have experienced sexual harassment on the job. And in the most extreme cases, farmworkers have faced modern-day slavery, with nearly a dozen forced labor operations uncovered over the past two decades in Florida’s fields alone. That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news: Today, there is a solution. As farmworkers, we have created the Fair Food Program, a groundbreaking partnership among workers, growers, and major retail brands like McDonald’s, Whole Foods and Burger King that is ending decades of farmworker poverty and powerlessness. The Fair Food Program has been called “the best workplace-monitoring program” in the U.S. in the New York Times, and “one of the great human rights success stories of our day” in the Washington Post, and has won widespread recognition for its unique effectiveness from a broad spectrum of human rights observers, from the White House to the United Nations. Just last year the Fair Food Program received a Presidential Medal for its unique success in fighting modern-day slavery and other human rights abuses in corporate supply chains. But despite the Program’s historic achievements in advancing farmworkers' human rights, one buyer is still standing in the way of progress: Wendy’s. We are calling on you to stand with farmworkers in boycotting Wendy’s until they join the Fair Food Program and agree to protect the basic human rights of workers in their supply chain. Not only has Wendy’s turned its back on the farmworkers who harvest its produce, but it has taken steps that directly undermine the transformation that has been brought about by the Fair Food Program. Here’s how: Wendy's has not only refused to join the Fair Food Program (FFP), but has stopped buying tomatoes from Florida since the implementation of the FFP there. Rather than support an industry setting new standards for human rights, Wendy's took its tomato purchases to Mexico, where workers continue to confront wage theft, sexual harassment, child labor, and even slavery without access to protections. Instead of joining the FFP and its widely-acclaimed, uniquely successful worker-driven model of social responsibility, Wendy's released a new supplier code of conduct that contains no effective mechanisms for worker participation or enforcement. Wendy's new code represents the very worst of the traditional corporate approach to social responsibility driven by public relations rather than human rights. Wendy's stands alone as the last of the five major fast food corporations in the country not part of the FFP: McDonald's, Burger King, Yum! Brands and Subway are all doing the right thing and participating in the Program. By refusing to join, Wendy's is deriving a very real cost advantage over its competitors, while continuing to provide an alternative market for less reputable growers. It is unconscionable that Wendy’s refuses to support one of today’s most promising models to end poverty and human rights abuses in low-wage industries across the world. In five short years since its implementation, the Fair Food Program has prevented modern-day slavery and sexual violence, improved farmworker wages, and guaranteed basic safety protections for workers. Since the Program’s inception, participating buyers have paid well over $20 million into the FFP, helping to alleviate the poverty that our families have faced for decades. And we aren’t stopping with Florida tomatoes. In the past year, we expanded into Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and New Jersey, and to two new Florida crops, strawberries and bell peppers. Thanks to the support of participating buyers, the Fair Food Program has expanded its protections to tens of thousands of new workers, and is poised to grow exponentially in the years ahead. Today, we need you to tell Wendy’s that if they want your business, they must join the Fair Food Program.

Petition to Burger King
Bring Back Crown Shaped Nuggets at Burger King
Everyone can admit that Burger King has been going nowhere but downhill these past few years. They are obviously trying hard to recuperate themselves by adding stuff to the menu like pancakes, chicken fries, and at one point even a black coloured burger. All these new items combined with an alarmingly low price. Burger King, if anything, has gone cheap. They're producing cheaper product than before and it doesn't taste the same. I, amongst many others in the general population, never want to go to Burger King at all. However, there is one thing that would bring the attention of myself and many other people; the crown shaped nuggets. These nuggets were available from 2006-2011 and they were great. When these were available I wouldn't even want to go to McDonald's or Sonic I would just want Burger King because they were so good. I know I'm not the only person who misses these crown shaped nuggets. I ask that you please sign this petition to try and bring awareness to the cause for the crown shaped nuggets.
Petition to Taco Bell
Bring the Grilled Stuft Nacho back to Taco Bell
Fans and followers of Taco Bell, Inspired by the Beefy Crunch Movement and powered by our love for the Grilled Stuft Nacho, today we begin our movement to bring the Grilled Stuft Nacho back to Taco Bell. This movement will be aimed towards Taco Bell asking them to bring back a limited-time item we have seen twice in the past. Taco Bell has always used the fans and the consumers to figure out which limited-time items will be released and our plan is to use that to tell the company what we want. I ask all who enjoy Taco Bell to help in the effort to bring back this item. What is the Grilled Stuft Nacho? The Grilled Stuft Nacho starts with a flour tortilla and is filled with seasoned beef, warm nacho cheese, zesty cheesy-jalapeno sauce, red tortilla strips, and sour cream. The tortilla is folded in the shape of a triangle to fit the shape of a large tortilla chip. When did Taco Bell serve the Grilled Stuft Nacho? The Grilled Stuft Nacho has been released twice in Taco Bell limited-time offer history. (It is rare for an item to appear more than twice so this movement is important) The first time we've seen this as a LTO was December of 2013 and we last saw it May of 2015. I'd say we are due for another nationwide release. Why is this item so special? I'm glad you asked. The key ingredient in the Grilled Stuft Nacho is the cheesy-jalapeno on the inside. This sauce has only ever been released with the Grilled Stuft Nacho and is indescribably delicious. The perfect mix of ingredients in the shape of a tortilla chip for the great deal of $1.49 each. GOALS: We are asking for Taco Bell to bring back the beloved Grilled Stuft Nacho as a limited-time item. To make this happen we need YOU, the fans, to tell Taco Bell that this is what you want. Sign the petition to help bring back our item! Living Más website: www.LivingMas.com/movement Find us on social media as well and 'Like' Grilled Stuft Nacho Movement on facebook!

Canadian Bacon is a made up phrase. Demand Egg McMuffins call it Ham.
Canadian Bacon is a phrase used in the US that describes a piece of ham. Canadians do not use this phrase, as bacon is bacon in both countries. Although I’m sure Canadians love that we have been tricked into saying their country name every time we order a delicious Egg McMuffin, it should really just say Ham. Bottom line is it bugs Canadians who don’t understand why this phrase exists and misleads unsuspecting Americans who might actually want bacon, instead of ham! Either way the Egg McMuffin is a masterpiece and is in no way to blame for its unmistakeable deliciousness.
