(US/va) UVa students to ask for more vegan dining
- [The Daily Progress]
Students at the University of Virginia are planning to ask dining
officials to expand vegan options in the school’s dining halls.
The students have been working with People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals’ student wing to collect signatures for a petition asking
for the change, and are planning to deliver the document to dining
officials soon. Vegans abstain from not only meat, but also from
animal products and byproducts — milk and eggs, for example.
Dining officials haven’t yet seen the petition, so they couldn’t
comment on it directly.
Nicole Jackson, who is marketing manager for UVa dining for ARAMARK,
the company that contracts to provide the services, emphasized that
the dining halls offer a variety of vegan selections.
