Former President Barack Obama will reportedly not offer his guests any meat at his upcoming 60th birthday extravaganza in Martha’s Vineyard.
As Fox News reports:
Guests of the party, which will take place this weekend, will be offered food options such as Spam Musubi made with plant-based faux-beef and faux-pork from the Impossible food label, and Eat Just’s plant-based eggs, Bloomberg reported after reviewing the menu. Cheesesteak Eggrolls, made with Impossible “beef” and “cheese sauce” from Perfect Day Inc., will also be offered.
The menu was put together by musician Questlove, of the Roots, who advocates for meat-free diets and foods, according to sources who spoke to Bloomberg.
Obama’s birthday party was set to be “big” and host hundreds of friends and family on his Martha’s Vineyard property, which he and the former first lady bought in 2019 for $11.75 million. Stars such as Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney reportedly received invites to the event.
Obama’s move comes against the backdrop of many liberal activists decrying the continued consumption of meat products, citing their production’s contribution to greenhouse gas admissions.
