As food policy director for The Humane Society of the United States, I have the privilege of working with people all over the country taking steps to help farm animals every day. Fortunately for the animals, one needn’t be a full time advocate to help make things better for pigs, chickens, cows and other farm animals. Here are five small ways to make a big impact toward building a more humane food system.

“New Zealand pizza chain Hell Pizza is living up to its name by introducing Pizza Roulette. What is Pizza Roulette? It seems the pizzeria will put two drops of the super-ultra spicy ghost pepper sauce onto only one slice of your pizza, but they won’t tell you which.”
I find this a useful way to divide people into two camps. Camp One sees this as the most exciting innovation in the world of eating; ghost peppers are, after all, the world’s spiciest chile. Camp Two makes a mental note to go nowhere near this place, and under no circumstances order this pizza.
In fact, the food world seems to be going toward Camp One and getting spicier. Following are spots where you don’t necessarily have to bring your own ghost peppers to make sure the food is hot enough for you.
