Mayor Pardons Tofurkey & Challenges Council to Food Drive


Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Pardons Tofurky

Today Mayor Murray pardoned Braeburn the Tofurky and challenged the Seattle City Council to a food drive.

“I, Mayor Murray, pardon Braeburn the Tofurky,” the mayor proclaimed in the atrium of Seattle City Hall.

Braeburn the Tofurky will live out its natural life at the Rainier Valley Food Bank, the beneficiary of the food drive between Seattle City Council and the Mayor’s Office. Braeburn will be joined by his understudy, Honeycrisp.

The Mayor’s and City Council’s offices have until December 12, 2014 to collect non-perishable donations.  The team that collects the most food shall have doughnuts delivered by the losing team by either Mayor Murray or Council President Tim Burgess.

Braeburn and Honeycrisp were named after popular Washington State apples.


Q: Why did the Tofurky cross the road?

A: To prove he wasn’t a chicken!

I’m gobbling up Tofurky this year, and lovin’ it! Eating lower on the food chain helps you, animals, and the planet, and means more people get fed with the crops we grow. Plus you’ll never worry how long you need to cook your Tofurky. As you pile on more potatoes and pie, give a special Thank you for “Braeburn” the Tofurkey!
