The ASPCA and other groups just released a new digital resource called the Good Groceries Guide. Director of Farm Animal Welfare Strategy Daisy Freund joins Cheddar with what shoppers should watch for to ensure they're buying food that matches their values. The guide helps consumers shop for fair, healthy, and humane products.
Freund warns to be careful of misleading labels on grocery items. She gives helpful tips on which buzzwords are honest, and which are just marketing ploys. We also learn why shopping locally and avoiding waste can help champion the fair treatment of farm animals.
Finally, we get an update on the ASPCA's work to protect farm animals. Freund reveals the organization is working on both community and legislative levels to advocate for domestically-bred animals. We also get to meet Nugget, the six-year-old Maltese rescue.
