Samar Hassan started this petition to Senator Richard Blumenthal and

US Schools should provide Halal, Kosher and Plant-based meal options on their breakfast and lunch menus across the Nation. Children that go to school are often faced with a challenge of what they can or cannot eat at school due to dietary or religious restrictions. They often settle for just salad or no lunch at all while they’re fellow classmates are enjoying a wholesome or fun meal especially when there’s hamburgers or hot dogs being served that they can’t eat because they are not Halal or Kosher certified and/or the meals include pork. Many Muslim and Jewish people do not eat pork, that’s over 10 million Muslim and Jewish Americans in the United States!

Additionally, there are many Americans who identify as Vegan or Vegetarian which currently exceeds 9 million in the US. The demand for  Plant-based or animal-free products has been rapidly growing and many have been turningto more healthy, organic and non-gmo options. 

We are calling on all government officials, Schools, and food based organizations to provide Halal, Kosher and Vegan/Vegetarian options on breakfast/lunch school menus. A child should never go hungry because of a dietary or religious restriction!
