University of Texas at San Antonio to Provide more Vegan Options
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
The University of Texas at San Antonio currently provides a limited selection of vegan food options on campus. Students who live on campus with no car or kitchen are subject to one or two options each day. The diet is as diverse and creative as eating non-vegan and we would like to see a change. Many people are allergic to animal based ingredients or lactose intolerant, so this diet is sometimes not even a "choice". More vegan options could be implemented at the Roadrunner Cafe, the Rowdy Curbside Food Truck, and the various food courts.
Additionally, the separation of vegan and non-vegan food in the Roadrunner Cafe has not been adequate. Students have found cooked chicken in meals labeled "Vegan Mixed Veggies" and "Vegan Stir Fry". Students should not have to pick through their food to make sure it doesn't contain flesh.
Below are just a few examples of simple and creative meals/ingredients that could be provided on campus. Countless more options can easily be found on google and in vegan cook books (it doesn't just have to be tofu)!
- Orange Soy Curls
- Pesto Pasta
- Beyond Burger
- Gardein Imitation Meats
- Mac & Cheese
- Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
- Taco Lasagna
Lastly, adding vegan options would be a great investment for UTSA. Local restaurants like Earth Burger, Green Vegetarian Cuisine, and La Botanica are excellent examples of this. In fact, Earth Burger has announced THREE new locations in the past few months (San Antonio, San Marcos, & Mall of America).
This petition was created by the members of the UTSA Animal Rights Club.
