Add More Vegan Options at California State University of Long Beach

Please add more vegan options to Cal State Long Beach's Dining Halls, Convenience Stores, and Restaurants. With your help, my goal is to make delicious vegan options more available to all of the students at Cal State Long Beach. There are students at CSULB who feel they have a disadvantage when it comes to finding food because there are not enough vegan options readily available. Please consider adding more vegan food at CSULB's or even replacing some of the non-vegan foods with vegan options instead. Replacing non-vegan foods with vegan food would reduce our carbon footprint because animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of environmental destruction, we would cause less harm to animals because they are mistreated and violently killed in order to end up on our plate, and vegan food can be healthier than animal based foods because Heart Disease, Diabetes, and other diseases are linked to eating animal products. Below I have listed a few sources backing up these claims.
