Veg School Meals in Taiwan

A majority of schools in Taiwan are offering vegetarian meals.

A new survey released by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in Taiwan has reported that more than 85 percent of elementary, junior, and high schools in Taiwan are providing vegetarian options for school lunches. The survey, conducted in October, reported that 2,328 out of 3,517 schools have offered vegetarian options, with 676 schools offering vegetarian meals at least once every two weeks or once in a month. The MOE findings show a significant expansion of veg options since a similar survey conducted in February 2010. The Deputy Minister of Education in Taiwan, Lin Tsong-ming, supports more veg options in order to combat global warming and reduce health problems associated with meat consumption.
