Real Food Daily removes promotion for Breeders’ Cup attendees, Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

Earlier today Real Food Daily ran a special offer for people in town for the Breeders’ Cup. They offered a free beverage to anyone who showed their ticket stub from the Breeders’ Cup horse race at Santa Anita Park. They just wanted people from out of town to enjoy a wonderful Organic Vegan meal. 
Many people were offended because it looked like they were promoting the event because the image had the logos of the Breeders’ Cup and Santa Anita Park on them. I decided to call the manager of the Pasadena store who was running the promotion to see what was really happening. I was extremely polite as always.
It seems the person who came up with the promotion just didn’t think it through all the way. The person also did not know that horse racing is cruel and most ethical Vegans are against using animals as entertainment. I politely educated the person sharing web pages ( http://www.peta.org/issues/Animals-in-Entertainment/the-horseracing-industry-drugs-deception-and-death.aspx ) about the cruelty of horse racing. They thanked me and ended the promotion immediately. Politely educating people is effective. Not everyone knows all the Vegan issues.
The RFD person told me that they do not promote these companies or horse racing. They told me they are sorry if they offended people. They just wanted people to eat Vegan food which is good for animals, the environment and people. They will think things through more carefully in the future.
Real Food Daily posted this on their Facebook page just now. “Thanks RFD fans for pointing out the ill-conceived horse racing promo. We took it down. We offered it because, believe it or not, there are a lot of horse racing fans who are hard core vegans and love animals and eat at RFD. But we agree with you, this promo does not support RFD’s values.”
Thank you, Real Food Daily for doing the right thing! Let’s all show our support and like their page 
Here is their website. Check out their menus. They also have Organic wine and beer! I LOVE their food.
*While I posted a link to a PETA web page, it doesn’t mean that I support absolutely everything they do.
