Palestine’s First Vegan Cafeteria Seeks Support

Palestinian Animal League launches crowdfunding campaign to provide plant-based food to 13,000 university students in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Animal League (PAL) launched a crowdsourcing campaign to raise funds for the opening of Palestine’s first not-for-profit vegan cafeteria to be located on the Al Quds University campus in Abu Dis, Jerusalem. The café (to be called “Sudfeh,” meaning “serendipity” in Arabic) will also be the first vegan cafeteria in any Arabic speaking university in the world. PAL seeks to raise £10,000 (approximately $13,250) to cover startup costs for the initiative (to be used for renovations, equipment purchases, and staff salaries). Once up and running, the café should be self-sustaining, and its income will be used to fund animal protection projects and scholarships for students who could otherwise not be able to afford college. The project is part of PAL’s “Youth for Change” program, which empowers young people to protect animals and the environment in their local community. You can donate to the project through Crowdfunder.
