More Vegetarian Food in School Lunches

I want more vegetarian food. There are many reasons why Portland Public Schools should have more vegetarian food for lunches.


First of all, there’s lots of vegetarians in Portland Public Schools, and I am one of them. There’s lots of people in my school who are vegetarians too.


Second, you’ll sell a lot more lunches because today I wanted a bean and cheese burrito, but they only had meat. The lunch helper told me that a lot of people had asked that today too. I had to have yogurt today, because that was the only option, and that is very high in sugar. The other option was peanut butter and jelly, but I couldn’t sit near my friends and it would have been sad and lonely. Also, someone in my class is allergic to peanuts.


Third, if you sell meat all the time, even the people who aren’t vegetarians get sick of meat sometimes. Here are a few options you could serve for lunch:

Mac and cheese
Bean and cheese burritos
Hummus and pita
Pasta with marinara sauce
Bean and rice bowls (they were so delicious!)
Veggie burgers

Fourth, think of the poor animals who have to get killed just so we can have food. And you’re contributing to extinction of animals like cows, and pigs.

Fifth, all of the people who have to get yogurt or peanut butter and jelly could get sick because of how high the sugar is.
