Call for legal right to have vegan meals on public sector menus
BBC revealed that An animal-free option should be guaranteed on the menu at every school and hospital, campaigners have claimed.
The Vegan Society is calling on MSPs to create a new law to ensure plant-based meal choices are always on public sector menus in Scotland.
Campaigners claim vegan patients are having to rely on friends and families to bring animal-free meals in to hospitals.
But MSPs have raised concerns about costs and children’s nutrition.
Barbara Bolton, of campaign group Go Vegan Scotland and a lawyer specialising in vegan law, said there was still a perception that “vegans are affluent and are eating avocados every day”.
