International Vegan Junk Food Day 2016

It only comes around once a year so let me be the first to wish you a happy 3rd Annual International Vegan Junk Food Day!

International Vegan Junk Food Day was launched by Fat Gay Vegan in 2014 to celebrate mouthwatering comfort food that just happens to be kind to non-human animals. No cow was killed to make your juicy burger on #IVJFD16. No need to support the cruel dairy industry to enjoy decadent chocolate during this globally recognised day. Eggs? Forget about hurting chickens on this special day.
