Seeing the poor around him didn't always bother Kale. After all, he grew up in Riverside - he was poor too. But it was a good childhood. All the neighbors helped each other when times got tough. Most nights, his family ate at the free food center. He looked up to Charity. As he got old enough to understand the reasons behind his neighbors and his own family being poor, however, he realized he wanted to help people too, and food seemed to be the best way to help. With a healthy meal, people were healthier and happier overall. It always seemed to Kale though, that most of the food donated to Charity's was boxed, pre-made, and had an animal ingredient in it in one way or another. From a young age, Kale felt for the animals a lot of people used for food. He was only 10 years old when he went vegetarian and 13 when he decided to go fully vegan. It didn't take him long to realize how he could help. He would build a garden and grow food to give away to his neighbors. After plenty of careful planning and studying, he planted his first seeds, and a couple of months after, had his first harvest. It was a lot of hard work, but there was nothing quite like seeing the looks on his neighbors' faces when he gave them tomatoes, zucchini, and carrots.

When Kale grew older, he purchased a food truck and with tongue-in-cheek, named it 'Don't Kale My Vibe'. While he was still going strong with his garden and even had added a greenhouse so he could grow most of the year around, he realized he could provide fully cooked vegan meals to his neighbors, offer cooking classes right out of the truck, and maybe even inspire a few people to go vegan once they realized how delicious the meals could be! With his skills, he could have probably moved out of Riverside to the big city and had his own restaurant or taught classes at university. But here, he was doing a real service, really helping people, and he never got tired of the looks on the faces of his neighbors when he still went around and gave out some of his harvest for free.

"Different people have different reasons for going vegan, from health concerns to wanting to live as cruelty-free as possible...Because hey, even if you're not planning on being vegan yourself, it's still nice to learn and try to understand why others might make that choice." From 'Why Go Vegan' on Subeta

What you eat can really make a difference in many areas of your life. Our diet can determine whether we're more likely to get certain diseases, what companies get our money, and it also shows others our consciousness of environmental issues. Every day, someone who eats vegan can save 1100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forest, equal to 20 pounds of CO2, and the life of one animal. Eating a vegan diet can lower your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease - two of the most chronic conditions in the Western world. A diet free from animal products can also treat or reverse lots of other health conditions, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease. Eating a diet based in plants will naturally keep you slim as well, which helps mitigate lots of health concerns. You can never go wrong by showing kindness to animals, especially by choosing to not eat them! Unfortunately, the meat and dairy industry has a huge campaign going on to try and make us think that their animals are happy on their farms - this couldn't be further from the truth. Animals on industrial farms are kept in cramped conditions, force-fed by tube, and pumped full of chemicals to make them grow faster and bigger, among other horrible things. If you would like to know more about why you should go vegan, here are a couple of places to start: Veganism: 20 Powerful Reasons You Should Go Vegan by Sentient Media and The Top 6 Reasons People Go Vegan, Explained by CNet.
