I just got back from a large (almost 500 people) catered event and there were no vegan options. The event was a celebratory afternoon tea with cake, tea, coffee and water for everyone. Do you think it’s unreasonable to expect them to cater for those who don’t eat animal products? We were not asked to specify any dietary requirements beforehand.
It seems logical to me that by catering with food and drink that doesn’t contain animal products, that the maximum number of people could eat something.
Vegan Options at This Tea
Anya from Cooking With Plants recently showed a video with many vegan options for an afternoon tea. Take a look:
Vegan Options should be valued
The event that I attended was at the University where I work. They pride themselves on being inclusive and how people of all faiths and values are welcome and accommodated. My values include eating health-giving food, helping the environment and not harming animals. I don’t feel that these are part of the inclusion.
What do you think? Should the default catering be no animal products so that as many people as possible have something to choose from?
