NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION ASKS APPLEBEE’S FOR PLANT-BASED MENU OPTIONS
- September 19, 2018
One Meal a Day for the Planet and the Center for Biological Diversity Tuesday hosted events at Applebee’s locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Clearwater, Florida to ask the restaurant to add at least one plant-based entrée to all of its menus nationwide.
“Applebee’s has an opportunity to show real leadership and concern for the health of customers and communities by adding plant-based options on its menu,” said Ashley Schaeffer Yildiz, campaign manager at One Meal a Day for the Planet. “At a time when consumer taste buds are changing –– 22 percent of consumers are limiting meat, poultry or seafood, according to a recent study –– Applebee’s can also take advantage of the growing demand for plant-based foods.”GO TO STORY
