Hannah left a comment last week where she mentioned working with her school’s cafeteria to get more vegan options, so I asked her to share some of her best tips:
Here’s the part I missed in this video: the whole reason I reached out to Hannah in the first place was how she put it, that she was “helping the school to improve their vegan options,” which is such a great way to look at things that frames the rest of the problem perfectly.
Maybe things have changed, and I hope they have, but when I was in school for the first year the meal plan was mandatory and there wasn’t enough broccoli in the salad bar to keep me nourished, let alone to burn through the minimum deposit. I wasn’t vegan until a few years later, but I honestly don’t know if I would have been able to approach things like Hannah has – if you’re “trapped” in a bad food supply situation at your cafeteria you need to take a look at this one.
And if you’ve freed yourself by working with some cafeteria people, let us know what worked for you in the comments!
