Kick Aramark Off Campus!
This petition made change with 3,289 supporters!
One of my favorite aspects about being a Panther is standing side by side a wealth of student activists who are eager to change the world for the better. Many students on campus have joined together to stand up against our foodservice provider, Aramark Corporation, which is in midst of a nationwide animal cruelty scandal.
In Aramark’s food supply, chickens raised for meat endure the worst forms of animal abuse we could ever imagine. This animal is bred to grow so big and so fast that they are often crippled and unable to walk for the remainder of their life. All the while taking place in a dark, windowless shed, where these intelligent animals are crammed together and burned by toxic ammonia fumes from their own waste.
It’s saddening to know Aramark has released empty and misleading statements to the public in its attempt to generate positive media attention. The reality is: Aramark is an industry leader in animal abuse. Other foodservice companies are taking the initiative and working to end this cruelty – while Aramark attempts to sweep animal cruelty under the rug.
Please sign my petition to remove Aramark from our campus! We deserve a foodservice company that affords basic standards for chickens raised for meat. Thank you all for your support on this issue!!
