Cro-Mags frontman John Joseph has announced his desire to inspire young offenders in New York through a mentoring and vegan education programme. He works with an organization called the Healthy School Lunch Programme (HSLP) in NYC. He states:
“We go around and educate kids in the schools, and parents too, on healthy school food.”
John says it has been instrumental in getting alternative menus in a lot of schools in the city such as Queens elementary, the first vegetarian school in the USA.
The idea of severing the offenders healthy foods came from a local chef named Noah Sheet, in which John states, “I got an email from him and he told me about his own journey. He’s been seeing how he has shifted more and he read my book [Meat Is for Pussies]. He’s getting more into plant-based and so he said ‘Hey man, I got this programme going in the city’ – it was his idea and we presented it to the facility two weeks ago.”
The Cro-Mags have reportedly been working on new music for their next album, which will be their first since 2000’s Revenge. We’ll keep you posted as more details on new music from Cro-Mags come to light.
