Students for Veg Options

San Marcos students rally for more vegetarian options.

Fourteen-year-old Marco Galicia decided that, as a vegetarian, he wanted to see more veg dishes at his high school in San Marcos, Calif., and he rallied more than 1,000 people who agree with him. Galicia decided to form a petition for more veg options after becoming tired of finding few vegetarian offerings for school lunches. The director of child nutrition for the San Marcos Unified School district, Dena England, said that veg options existed but she was unaware that students might find them hard to identify. Veg offerings currently include cheese-filled pizza bread and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but Galicia’s petition specifically requests healthier menu items.
