Vegan Lunches for Kids: The Washington International SchoolThe Washington International School in Washington, D.C., offers a rigorous multilingual curriculum, vibrant creative arts programs, and opportunities for global philanthropy—and now it offers healthful vegan meals as well. PCRM nutritionists have partnered with the school to bring vegan lunch options to students.

This initiative began when the Washington International School’s chef, Wayne Hargrove, consulted a student advisory committee about lunch preferences. One student mentioned his interest in more vegetarian meals—and Chef Hargrove listened. He added MoonRose Black Bean Burgers, Gardenburger Veggie Burgers, and hummus platters to the menu. PCRM nutritionists visited the school to hold a special taste-testing event of the new items. That event helped boost veggie burger sales at the school by more than 500 percent.
