History


In October of 2008, the concept of Fast Food Free was born. At the time, we had a foreign exchange student living in our home who enjoyed eating fast food. Since I am an environmentalist as well as a vegetarian, my family did not eat at fast food chains. However, my host sister's interest in the food sparked my curiosity. After a lot of research, I found fast food is not only unhealthy it takes a toll on the environment, the animals used for meat and egg production, and farm workers. With these findings, I searched for a non-profit to join to help people eat less fast food when I didn't find one I created my own. Pledge!
