California School First in the Nation to Go Vegan

Meat, eggs, and dairy have been removed from the MUSE school, where students grow their own fresh veggies and soda is swapped for tea.

MUSE, a private school in Calabasas, CA is believed to be the first in the nation to adopt an entirely plant-based meal program. Co-founded by sisters Rebecca Amis and Suzy Amis Cameron, the early childhood-through-12th grade school was built upon a commitment to sustainability, reducing impact on the environment, and inspiring students to be stewards of the earth. The school’s 140 students learn about solar paneling and participate in a seed-to-table program in which they grow fresh produce for their cafeteria. “MUSE is an environmental school, and we walk our walk in every other respect,” Amis Cameron told Ecorazzi. “This was just one of those ah-ha moments which made us realize we aren’t walking our walk 100 percent if we’re still serving animal products.” MUSE joins the ranks of other US schools making more compassionate choices and adopting healthier, veg menus.
