What Is MeatOut?

MeatOut was started in 1985 by Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) to promote a conversation questioning the consumption of animal products around the world. The first day of spring was selected as symbolic of renewal and turning over a new leaf. In 2018, Animal Outlook (formerly Compassion Over Killing) took over the tradition of MeatOut by inspiring people to try veganism and using the day as a launch to VegWeek in April.
