Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

No Evil Foods makes meat…from plants. Some people told us it couldn’t be done. We took that as a challenge and started a rebellious company that uses food as a force for good. In a world of unsustainable animal agricultural practices and highly processed meat alternatives, our small-batch plant-based meats challenge the status quo by using simple, sustainable ingredients to recreate a traditional protein experience that blows minds from coast to coast.

No Evil Foods was born from a belief in the power of an individual (in our case, two) to enact global change and we couldn't be more excited to put our purpose into practice through our support of The Gentle Barn. We strongly believe that each of us has the power and responsibility to repair the world by speaking up for the most vulnerable among us. Thanks to The Gentle Barn for creating a safe place where our farmed friends can find peace.
