Notes From The Scientific Department



School Meals News
A few pieces of news and clarifications pertaining to school meal regulations may be of interest to Vegetarian Journal readers:

Outreach
VRG nutrition advisor Sue Havala, R.D., was featured as a speaker at a meeting of the Mecklenburg Vegetarian Association in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she addressed 60 members and discussed school meals legislation and other current food policy issues. Sue was also interviewed by Great Life magazine (a new health food store publication) about calcium in vegetarian diets, as well as by the Rocky Mountain News for a story about veggie burgers.

Debra Wasserman, co-coordinator of VRG, led two one-hour presentations on vegetarian nutrition and implementation of foods to meet nutritional requirements at the NACUFS (National Association of College and University Food Services) Region II Conference held at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. About 45 foodservice professionals from universities spanning Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia learned about how simple it is to cater to the needs of both vegetarians and vegans dining on campus. Debra focused on practical ideas and promoted VRG's foodservice materials. At one point in the proceedings, Debra asked for a show of hands to see how many of the attendees had vegans eating in their dining halls. Every single hand went up and all attendees indicated the desire to add more vegan options. This is certainly a positive sign in foodservice.

The Vegetarian Resource Group continues to distribute vegetarian and vegan literature throughout the United States. In recent months VRG exhibited at the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, MD; Whole Life convention in Chicago, IL; 2nd Annual Book Festival in Baltimore, MD; Vegetarian Society of D.C.'s Veggie Festival held in Virginia; and the Boston Vegetarian Society's Veggie Food Festival held in Boston, MA.
