Norfolk, Va. -- According to food-service provider Bon
Appétit, in the seven years since peta2, PETA's youth division, started its
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
already there are several standouts:
"The vegan revolution is in full swing, and nowhere is
that more evident than on college campuses," says peta2 Associate Director
Marta Holmberg. "The best way that students can fortify their health for a
tough year at school, protect the environment, and save animals' lives at the
same time is to go vegan."
The contest begins today, 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.
