Stop Supporting Animal Cruelty

Belmont University contracts with Sodexo, a food service company with a dirty secret: Sodexo uses liquid eggs from cruel, filthy, and unsustainable battery cage-farms. Battery cage farms pack egg-laying hens so tightly into tiny wire cages that they can’t even spread out their wings or engage in any of their natural behaviors.
This archaic practice is so cruel that it is illegal in the entire European Union and several states in the US. Other major companies like Unilever, Delaware North Companies, Burger King, and more have made commitments to phase out the purchasing of all eggs from farms that use this terrible practice. It’s an issue where food service leaders, environmental organizations, food safety organizations, and animal welfare organizations have all been saying one thing – and Sodexo has been doing the opposite.
Why then is the Belmont University contracting with a hospitality company like Sodexo? By contracting with Sodexo, Belmont University is directly supporting this cruel practice. Please, sign my petition and ask the leadership at Belmont University to urge Sodexo to end this extreme animal cruelty and completely phase out the use of battery-cage eggs. Let Belmont University know that you will no longer give them your support until they terminate their contract with Sodexo.
