Vegan/Vegetarianize The University of Saskatchewan sign now

Dear Whom it May Concern:

There is a matter of great importance that I would like to bring to your attention. As a vegetarian/vegan, having adequate vegetarian/vegan menu options is important to me. Providing vegetarian menu items not only appeals to vegetarian students, it also helps those looking for healthy, dairy-free, and easy kosher options.

Like me, many students avoid eating animal products for ethical reasons. Many more are skipping meat-based meals for health reasons. The vegetarian population is quickly growing, with more than 25 percent of the population opting out of meat-based meals.

Obesity is a growing problem among Americas teens, with as many as 33 percent qualifying as obese. As a school, you have the opportunity to combat this epidemic by providing nutritious menu items. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has provided scientific evidence showing that vegetarian and vegan foods promote good health and help young people maintain a healthy weight.

Up to 50 million Americans suffer from lactose intolerance, with 90 percent of Asian-Americans and 75 percent of Native and African-Americans suffering from this condition. Providing vegan options meets the needs of lactose-intolerant or allergic students.

Please visit VegAdvantage.com for help with adding vegetarian options to the menu. Veg Advantage is a national menu-consulting agency that helps food-service professionals add healthy dining options to their menus free of charge. Veg Advantage has helped several schools add vegetarian options to their menus, and it can help you by providing free professional advice on finding distributors, recipes, techniques, and much more!

Thank you for your time and consideration.

    The U of S could very well be the worst among major Canadian universities when it comes to food services. A big part of the problem is the lack of variety. Diversity of the campus community seems lost on the decision makers. Vegetarians and vegans are sim
