Veg Options in MO Schools

Students worked with officials to bring veg options to cafeterias in a Missouri school district.

Due to an increase in student demand, Missouri’s Hazelwood school district has agreed to start offering vegetarian options beginning in December. Students from the Hazelwood West Middle School complained to their school’s chapter of National Youth Rights Association that they had few, if any, veg-friendly foods to choose from at the cafeteria. Chapter president Jaylen Bledsoe and other student activists from NYRA—the largest youth-rights organization in the US—worked with Trish Plunkett, the director of the district’s Child Nutrition Services Department, to introduce cruelty-free foods. Plunkett says that students can expect to see healthy veg options like mushroom burgers before the end of the year.
