ANIMAL JUSTICE ACADEMY PANEL:
Getting Plant-Based Food into Institutions, Corporations, and Cities
with Nital Jethalal, Riana Topan, Matt Noble, Eleanor Carrara, and Ilana Braverman
Finding the right food policies to champion in the animal rights movement can be tricky, but getting institutions to shift their purchasing to plant-based foods is one almost everyone can agree on.
Not only does it mean less money going to the animal agriculture industry, but it also means exposing huge populations of people to plant-based eating.
In this panel we’ll explore the range of current efforts to get vegan food into hospitals, schools, corporations, prisons, restaurants, food banks, and cities. We’ll look at what plant-based procurement strategies and programs seem to be working best, the challenges they’re facing, and some of the bigger wins.
