Over 170 Middle and High Schools to Get Veg Options!

A company called Aramark supplies the cafeteria food to over 500 school districts in the U.S.—and they recently did a study that shows that 60% of middle and high school students want healthier options at school.

We all know that vegan and vegetarian foods are healthier, and Aramark appears to concur—they’re offering more vegetarian options to over 170 schools, and they’re even adding a green “vegetarian” leaf icon next to menu items to specify which foods are vegetarian-friendly at those schools.

This study proves that there is a growing demand for meatless meals! High-five the first person you see, because the times are changin’ my friends! :)

Do you want vegan options in your school? Stay tuned to peta2.com next week for our latest campaign to help you fight mystery meat in YOUR cafeteria!

    I feel like many schools need to provide healthy foods. I would like to get each school in my city to have a garden at school. But in the winter season everything freezes.

    This is great, and a huge step. A lot of people I know don’t care what they eat for lunch, so now I can just hand a bunch of people some vegetarian stuff and they would eat it without complaint :)
