Stop Supporting Animal Cruelty

Considering the school's strong culture based around discovery, The Humane League was shocked to discover for themselves the cruelty within New Mexico State University's dining halls. New Mexico State University contracts with Sodexo, a food service company involved in a very dirty practice: 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 New Mexico State University contracting with a hospitality company like Sodexo? By contracting with Sodexo, NMSU is directly supporting this cruel practice. Please, sign my petition and ask the leadership at New Mexico State University to urge Sodexo to end this extreme animal cruelty and completely phase out the use of battery-cage eggs.
