A recent study showed that the number of plant-based options at universities has doubled since 2013!
The Daily Meal reports that the study, conducted by PETA 2, showed that just a few years ago a vegan student might only have had the option of a salad, but can now choose from an array of plant-based fare.
The research also found that some schools are promoting the new options to non-vegan students; for example, Miami University offered an 80 percent vegan Thanksgiving feast, including vegan mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and sweet potato casserole, enjoyed by omnivores and vegan alike.
This shift in demand for meat-free food comes as no surprise. Vegetarian Resource Group reported last year that 42 percent of vegetarians are between the ages of 18 and 34, and 12 percent of millennials identify as “faithful vegetarians.”
