Does In-N-Out Need a Veggie Burger?

California vegan Ari Solomon has started a petition to get the beloved burger chain to offer something for vegetarians.

If you've ever spent time in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, or Texas, chances are you're acquainted with In-N-Out Burger, the much-loved fast food chain with the pared down menu. And you might have noticed that In-N-Out doesn't offer much for vegetarians. Sure, you can get a grilled cheese sandwich or some fries, but it's a restaurant that caters to omnivores.


Could that change? Maybe. Southern California vegan Ari Solomon has created an online petition to lobby In-N-Out, which recently cut its ties with a sketchy beef supplier, to go a step further and offer veggie burgers.

ABC World News Tonight reported that one of the beef suppliers In-N-Out was buying from, Central Valley Meat, was shut down because they were violating animal cruelty laws and treating the cows horrendously. In-N-Out did the right thing and said they would no longer buy from this supplier, but it's the 21st century and I think it's high time they offer a veggie burger option for customers who don't want to eat animals or just want a little diversity with an environmentally-friendly, healthier option once in a while.

The petition has a target of 5,000 supporters and is just above 3,000 now. Given the health-conscious attitudes that prevail in much of California, there's little doubt that an In-N-Out veggie burger would be a success. And the more people opted for it, the better off our planet would be (industrial cattle farming is a big source of climate change-causing emissions). But In-N-Out hasn't changed its official menu since 1948, so maybe don't hold your breath.

In related news, McDonald's just opened its first vegetarian restaurant in India.

One of the stadium's few positive aspects is its connection to public transportation.

Yad Vashem

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
