Nina Gonzalez Makes a Difference


VO member Nina Gonzalez goes on ABC to tell the story how she changed her school district's lunch program. A runner, swimmer, and scholarship-level golfer, Nina is a great spokesperson for the animals!

Speaking of veg athletes, here is a piece of trivia:

Paavo Nurmi, the "Flying Finn," went vegetarian in 1909 at age 12. He won a total of nine Olympic gold medals (like fellow veg Carl Lewis) and three silver medals in the 12 events in which he competed at the Olympic Games from 1920 to 1928.
