Portugal Will Now Require a Vegan Meal Option at All Hospitals, Prisons, Colleges

Leave a comment

Portugal just passed a law requiring all public cafeterias to offer at least one vegan option to diners. That mandate applies to all public hospitals, prisons, schools, universities and other public buildings.

Within six months, all these cafeterias must provide a minimum of one meal choice that is free from animal products. The law calls it a “strict vegetarian option.”

What drove this remarkable change? The will of the people, of course.

Soon, Portuguese vegans won’t have to struggle to maintain their ethical or health-based dietary choices when they’re stuck with eating cafeteria food in a public building.
