Los Angeles Residents: Make Vegan Lunches a Reality at Your Schools

Los Angeles Residents: Make Vegan Lunches a Reality at Your Schools

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Animals still need your help.

You did it! With your help, Los Angeles Unified School District voted in favor of a pilot program to offer vegan meal options in Los Angeles schools. Now we need your help to ensure it is a success!

On May 9, young activist and youth director of Earth Peace, Lila Copeland, led the charge by presenting her Healthy Freedom Campaign at the District’s board meeting. For two years, 15-year-old vegan activist Lila has worked hard to get a daily vegan entree option on every LAUSD school menu.

Her goal, and ours, is to get one complete vegan entree and open access to plant milk on the menu of every LAUSD school, five days a week. This is an unprecedented campaign and goal that has never before been done in any entire public school district in our nation, let alone the second largest district in the US.

Copeland partnered with board president Steve Zimmer to introduce the vegan meals pilot program resolution, and it was passed unanimously by the board. However, the pilot is undefined, and now the Superintendent is charged with forming the pilot and carrying it out.

We must ensure the vegan meals pilot is a success so that the whole district can roll out vegan options. This will affect the health of more than 600,000 students who are currently faced with eating nothing but animal products in school, every day.

We need Los Angeles residents and LAUSD stakeholder support in putting forth community mandates for this pilot. Please support the animals, and the incredible efforts of these hard-working student activists!
