Pioneer Kitchen promotes World Vegan Month
Nov. 10, 2020 — DENTON — In keeping with their healthy eating paradigm, Pioneer Kitchen will offer a selection of vegan options in the Dining Hall during lunch on Tuesday, November 17 for World Vegan Month.
Chef Kolton Broumley believes providing vegan choices is a way to spread awareness and to bring something new to the student's palates. "We want to provide these options so students can explore alternative items and because proteins might become more expensive in the future," he said.
Tuesday's menu will include jalapeno mac-n-cheese, pulled BBQ jackfruit, butternut squash bisque, a version of Chef Broumley's favorite vegan dish, ratatouille, and more.
The celebration of World Vegan Day began November 1, 1994, to commemorate the Vegan Society’s 50th Anniversary. That day was later extended to become World Vegan Week and as we now know it, World Vegan Month, in November.
While vegetarians do not to eat meat and fish, veganism is a stricter form of vegetarianism that prohibits the consumption or use of any products that come from animals, including dairy, eggs, honey, leather goods, wool and silk.
According to Vegan.org, many people choose to become vegans for a variety of reasons, including their health, the environment and to save animals.
