peta2 Launches 2012 Contest as the Number of Vegan Students Skyrockets
N.H. -- According to food-service provider Bon Appétit, in the seven years since
peta2, PETA's youth division, started its annual Most
Vegan-Friendly College contest, the number of college students who
identify themselves as vegetarian has risen by 50 percent and the number
of vegan students has more than doubled. So this year, determining the
best of 32 large schools and 32 small schools will be tougher than ever, but
the University of New Hampshire (UNH) has a good shot.
menu improvements allow students at UNH—a newcomer to the
contest—to enjoy a diverse range of vegan options, including vegan
chicken with fig sauce, vegan yellow-pepper
soup, vegan chicken fajitas, and many more delectable dishes that will keep
students warm through the chilly Northeastern winters.
vegan revolution is in full swing, and nowhere is that more evident than at UNH
and other schools across the country," says peta2 Associate Director Marta
Holmberg. "The best way that students can fortify their health for a tough
year of hitting the books, protect the environment, and save animals' lives at
the same time is to go vegan."
being turned off by the massive suffering of animals raised and killed for
food, students have other good reasons to go vegan. According to the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics, vegetarians are less prone to heart disease, diabetes,
obesity, and cancer than meat-eaters are. Also, the United Nations has
concluded that factory farming is one of the biggest contributors to the most
serious environmental problems at every level—from local
to global—and that a worldwide shift toward a
vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.
contest began October 8, and voting for
the first round ends October 16. Round winners are determined by the number
of votes received, the quality and variety of vegan foods offered by the
schools, the schools' enthusiasm in promoting vegan options, and student
feedback. For more information, please visit peta2.com.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
