Veganism on campus
Thank you for publishing your “Special Diets” series focusing on veganism (Sept. 27). It sounds like GW’s dining services could stand to improve their vegan offerings. As a vegan and a recent college graduate, I understand how helpful it is to have tasty, nutritious, plant-based options available on and near campus, such as Java Green, an award-winning all-vegetarian restaurant not far from campus that accepts GWorld cards. A recent survey conducted by ARAMARK found that 30 percent of college students seek out animal-friendly foods when dining on campus, whether or not they identify as vegetarian or vegan. When there are plenty of such options available, each of us can make the choice to stand up for animals every time we sit down to eat. Check out local veg-friendly options at VegDC.com.
