Going Meatless during Covid-19 Pandemic

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, nearly 30% of people in the U.S. were changing their diets to mostly vegetarian and vegan plant forward meals. Now after news reports about meatpacking plants in the United States becoming hotspots for coronavirus infections, with nearly 5,000 packing plant workers in 19 state fallen ill, and 20 have died as of May 1, 2020, more Americans are seeking plant forward alternatives to swap out beef, pork and chicken.
