Get a Veggie Burger, Get A Free Shirt!

Check out all the details below and then click "Get Points" to submit a form for points!

Fact: It’s a serious bummer to get to the lunch line and find out there’s nothing there that you can eat. :(

As you face mystery-meat burgers and hot dogs or even more mysterious taco meat, it’s easy to think that you might well get discouraged. Luckily, students around the country are easily having delish vegan burgers added to the menu—and you can be next!

Veggie Burger with text

Check out the Veggie Burger Project page and follow the 3 simple steps to victory!

Once you get the veggie burger added, let us know, and you’ll receive 10,000 points!

To sweeten the deal, we’re going to give everyone who adds a veggie burger to his or her school menu an “I ♥ Veggie Burgers” T-shirt to show off!

Get a veggie burger in your school and get a free peta2 veggie burger tshirtBut beware: We’ll be confirming the addition with your school, so no fibbing!

So, what are you waiting for?!

    my school always has the same nasty salad’s and all of them have meat, in almost every lunch line has meat in their options but whenever french fries hits the line it takes forever for me to get fries and it’s not fair that us Vegans and vegetarians are not getting a veggie burger, we also signed a petition to have the school put veggie burgers in every lunch line and even protested about it, and they turned us down. It’s not fair all those meat lovers get everything they want and us Vegans and Vegetarians barley get anything at my school we’re not being treated equal it’s not right.

    My school already has a veggie option with almost every meal, so what could I do? I have also talked to the head of the lunch administration and she is working hard to get vegan options too.

    Hey! I am proud to announce that about a month ago, I convinced my school to add a veggie burger to their lunch menu! I filled out the request form and have since then, not heard back from anyone about it. Could you please contact me? Thanks :)

    Hello,
    I was wondering if there are any alternative ways to complete this mission.
    I am a online school/home school student. I do not go to a school where there is a lunch time or cafeteria. I stay at home to do my schooling and I eat at home as well.
    So, is there any other way to prove I eat veggie burgers to win the points and the shirt?
    (Just to make things clear, I’ve been vegetarian for 2 years and I am recently transitioning into being vegan.) But all of this time, I have been eating veggie burgers and I love them so much.

      Thanks for wanting to get active for animals! I would be more than happy to help you with a project that you can work on in order to spread the word about animal rights, and we can definitely give you Street Team points for it. Here are some suggestions:

      • Set up a table at a local event or concert and gather e-mail addresses for some of our petitions. Does that sound like something you’d be comfortable doing? We can send you the petition sheets, stickers and leaflets for free!
      • Get a local community center, gym, restaurant, or somewhere else that you frequent to add a vegan option to their menu!
      • Start a club with some of your friends, family, or neighbors.
      • Get active online!

      Let me know if any of this sounds good to you, and I encourage you to come up with some ideas of your own—just make sure that whatever you come up with involves spreading the message of animal rights to as many people as possible.

      I hope to hear back from you soon!

    I have a very small school, an I’m pretty sure I am the only vegetarian. I’m unsure if they will go for it because I will be the only person. How can I confront my principle next year? I’m very nervous. 0.0

      My school is a rather large school so we have like three assistant principals. and a main principal and many random administrators! if your school has more than one, go to the friendliest one and just kinda ask, and say that you and probably others would greatly enjoy the vegan option, and just keep trying to get them to atleast think about it, and if theyre like
      lmao nah
      peta has the options that they help when the school says no!
      just give it a shot and the worst thing they could say is no

    To start off let me just say I’m so ecstatic because I got veggie burgers added to my school menu, and they’re a huge hit!! But I’ve been having an issue because this was a few months ago, and since then I’ve filled out the form to inform you guys about the success and get the points a bunch of times, but every time i think there seems to be an issue with peta getting in touch with my school to confirm it.
    I was just wondering if there was something I could to to help avoid a communication issue that seems to be happening.

    At my school, we have Morningstar chik’n nuggets every other day & we have black bean burgers on the other days. Sometimes there’s vegetarian things like cheese lasagna, cheese sticks, etc. There’s nothing to drink except small juice pouches, and you’re not allowed to get more than one. But you can have a milk and a juice. Doesn’t make any sense. And in the morning, you can choose between hash browns and juice. So if I want to eat, I have to skip out on my juice and drink water because I refuse to drink milk & they refuse to let me get an apple juice if I have hash browns. Very dumb. So maybe I’m going to talk to my school about adding regular veggie burgers and maybe soy milk! I’ve never heard of schools having other milk options, but I can always try.

      Everyone at my school says that the burgers they serve are soy, no matter what. It’s just the general consensus that obviously those burgers are soy and nobody questions it but I’m preeetty sure they are not. I’d like to ask, but social anxiety kind of cuts that back for me.

    My school will give us yogurt. Which in most cases isnt even vegan. Its also not healthy enough. I normally end up not eating or getting a bag of pop chips from the health vendinf machine. (It does have vegan snacks which is good.) But snacks are not food. Im talking to mt principal on monday about this situation . I know more than a fee vegitarians that would benifit. And even if you’re not a vegitarian, a veggie burger is clearly nuch healthier and everybody complains about hoe bad school lunches are. I feel like I need ti do something now because im a senior and itll help the future vegans at school.

    At my school, we can only get salads. Some of the salad has meat already, and some days it’s not even there. My school is full of vegetarians and vegans so this is a great idea!

    Hoping to get veggie burgers in my school this year! I’ve never tried a veggie burger before because I’m just now trying to go vegetarian mode. So if I were to get this in my school I think it’d be a great way for me and anyone else who wants to try an opportunity! I think I’ll even get the school my mom works at involved. 😀

Also, since this campaign is already won at your school, you should check out our “Cut Out Dissection” campaign next: http://features.peta2.com/cut-out-dissection/! :)
