San Francisco -- Votes have been tallied, the judges have mulled it over, and Jewish Community High School has been declared the winner of the Most Vegetarian-Friendly Cafeteria contest, sponsored by peta2, the world's largest youth animal rights organization. Jewish Community High School beat out four other schools to take the award in the category of U.S. Private Schools. The school will receive a framed certificate and a thank-you card signed by peta2 staffers.
The Jewish Community High School is stepping up to meet the food demands of students who are concerned about protecting animals, the environment, and their health--the school's menu is entirely vegetarian, kosher, and organic. Some popular food options that are available in the Jewish Community High School cafeteria include vegetarian sushi, a falafel bar, potato leek soup, and a make-your-own burrito bar.
"Jewish Community High School stands as a role model for schools across the country when it comes to educating students about how their food choices affect not only their own health but also the world around them," says peta2 director Dan Shannon. "More and more young people are learning that the best thing that they can do for animals, the planet, and themselves is to go vegan."
Jewish Community High School beat out The Colorado Springs School, the Columbus School for Girls in Ohio, The Chapin School in New York, and the Beaver Country Day School in Massachusetts. Awards were also given in the categories of U.S. Public Schools and Canadian Schools.
The consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy products has been linked to obesity, heart disease, and other health problems. Raising animals for food is a leading cause of water pollution and land degradation and the single leading cause of greenhouse-gas emissions. And, of course, the meat industry causes animal suffering on a massive scale.
