IN Praise of vegan schools

To the Editor:

I am 93 years and 4 months old, and I have to say what a treat it was to read and see the children at Peck Slip public school enjoying their all-vegetarian cafeteria lunches. (“No Hot Dog Day at This School,” April 9)

I was a vegetarian for 20 years and turned to an all-vegan diet a few years ago. (It’s NEVER TOO LATE to start!) The health of humanity and the environment, and the abject cruelty to the factory farmed animals are the most common sense reasons to consider and hopefully stick to a plant-based diet.

For the sake of a healthier and less-cruel planet, I hope that many more NYC public schools will choose the all-vegetarian (make it “vegan”!) lunch menu.
