Are you musical? If so, then create your own video using these lyrics…

1689325We’re announcing a friendly contest designed primarily for public good but that also offers a $100 prize for the entry judged by us to be the best one. Here’s how it works: If you’re musical, we ask that you consider creating a video of yourself and/or your musical group singing your own version of “Hey Food” — which would consist of the lyrics below sung to the tune of “Hey Jude” by The Beatles. Then, send a link to your video to us at, and we’ll judge all submissions and publicize the winning one on our Facebook page. See an example of what could be a contest entry by clicking here. Please note that our deadline was September 5, 2014, but to allow time for more entries, we’ve extended the deadline until September 31, 2014.

“Hey Food”

Hey food, it’s linked to climate change.
There are animal products, and then there’s better
Remember to start with Meat Free Mondays
then continue surely to make it better.

Hey dude, don’t be afraid.
If meat and potatoes have defined your manhood
then think again, cause you can be a hero
by saving the world with potatoes and tofu.

And anytime you miss some meat, hey woman, refrain
from forgetting we must stop global warming.
For well it’s known you’ll be a heroine
by making our world a little cooler.

Hey folks, don’t let me down.
Try an internet search for “Chomping Climate Change
And remember this song next time you’re eating
then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey let’s begin
to better our world of food and climate change.
And don’t you know it’s you and me, hey yes, we’ll do
The movement we need is on our shoulder.

Hey food, it’s linked to climate change.
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember, if you’re a dreamer, you’re not the only one
then we’ll begin to make it better.
