Pamela Anderson pleas for prison to go vegan

PAMELA Anderson has offered to serve food in California's prisons if they go vegan.

The former 'Baywatch' star has written a letter through PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to Governor Jerry Brown urging him to make the menus in the jails across the state meat-free in order to save money and improve the health of the state's 127,000 inmates.

She also claims the move would save the state of California $4.3 million per year.

And if he agrees with her request, Pamela - who is a dedicated vegan and animal rights campaigner - will serve up the vegetarian food to all those incarcerated.

In the letter, she wrote: "Beans, rice, lentils, pasta, potatoes and other vegetables, and oranges and other fruits have all the nutrients that a person needs but at a fraction of the cost of meats and cheeses.

"By taking meat off the menu in all 33 state-run prisons, you'd be dramatically reducing the amount of water used to produce prisoners' meals. It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce just 1 pound of meat."

Pamela previously made the same offer to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and previously served food to inmates at an Arizona prison when they went meat-free.

The 48-year-old set up the Pamela Anderson Foundation in 2014 to champion the rights of humans and animals and help the environment.
