ATLANTA, June 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Slutty Vegan and NBA All-Star Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns are teaming up to serve free food to the Atlanta community in celebration of Juneteenth. This Saturday, June 19th, each visitor to any of Slutty Vegan’s three locations in Atlanta (Ralph David Abernathy Blvd., Jonesboro, or Edgewood Ave.) can enjoy the vegan burger joint’s famous One Night Stand and a side of fries for FREE, all day long while supplies last. The plant-based burger is served loaded with vegan bacon, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, and Slutty Vegan’s Slut Sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun. In addition, Slutty Vegan will be paying its employees time and a half on Juneteenth.
This isn’t the first time Paul and Slutty Vegan have joined forces. In June 2020, Paul, La La Anthony, Gabrielle Union-Wade, and Ludacris bought out Slutty Vegan for the day to serve free food to customers as a thank you for the food brand’s philanthropic efforts. “In the spirit of Juneteenth, I’m honored to support a Black-owned business while dedicating resources to feed the community,” said Paul. “Let’s celebrate this Saturday.”
“On Juneteenth, we honor our independence and our freedom,” said Pinky Cole, Founder & CEO of Slutty Vegan. “As a Black-owned business, Slutty Vegan continues to grow thanks to support from our neighbors, and we have the opportunity to change people’s lives by unifying and diversifying our communities, giving back, and providing options and knowledge on a healthier lifestyle. Thanks to Chris, this Saturday, we’ll be reaching even more people and celebrating this extremely important day.”
