Jewish Community High School Named the Most Vegetarian-Friendly
A peta2 press release noted, "The Jewish Community High School is stepping up to meet the food demands of students who are concerned about protecting animals, the environment, and their health--the school's menu is entirely vegetarian, kosher, and organic. Some popular food options that are available in the Jewish Community High School cafeteria include vegetarian sushi, a falafel bar, potato leek soup, and a make-your-own burrito bar."
peta2 director Dan Shannon, who co-hosts an annual "secular Passover potluck seder," said in the press release, "Jewish Community High School stands as a role model for schools across the country when it comes to educating students about how their food choices affect not only their own health but also the world around them."
The school won the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's Golden Carrot Award last year. At the time, the school's director of food service, Stuart Jacobs, told j., "One of our main goals is to model and provide for healthful eating, utilizing organic produce. The program is vegetarian, and also shows it can be done in the kosher realm as well."
