People Are Urging McDonald's to Add Vegan Burgers to Its Menu Already

So it might come as a shock that one of, if not the largest fast food restaurant, McDonald’s, has yet to add a vegan burger to its menu nationwide.

),” author Kathy Freston started the petition seemingly five years ago, but it seems to have resurfaced recently, particularly following news of Burger King’s new vegan Whopper .

“With this petition I’m hoping to bring a positive change to America with a mainstream meatless option at McDonald’s!” writes Feston, a healthy living advocate who has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show , Oprah Winfrey , Dr. Oz and more.

“Adding plant-based protein options at McDonald’s will appeal to workers out for a quick lunch, families with health-conscious members out to dinner, children on field trips, and anyone looking for something different than the current menu at McDonald’s where even the french fries contain beef flavoring (they don’t in Europe, incidentally)!”

Freston told Food & Wine via email that consumers are “tired of being handed old-school choices” and want cleaner options.
