3) THALIA TORIBIO WINS VEGETARIAN RESOURCE GROUP 2015 RUNNER-UP COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP THIS SCHOLARSHIP IS SPONSORED BY THE ST. LOUIS VEGETARIAN SOCIETY

My story begins in January, 2011 when I decided to become a vegetarian because I've always had a sensitive stomach ... So I decided to eliminate all the junk food and sodas. After a while I gained not only health but life back ... The reason why I'm vegetarian is because I never like to eat animals and hate factory farming. . . I started promoting vegetarianism to the community with a group of my friends.

I made two lists of students who would like to have more vegetables in the cafeteria, then I brought it to the principal asking him for a petition to have more vegetables in the lunch period. He nicely told me that it would be his pleasure and the next day there were more vegetables. Also I went with my cooking teacher to lunch to give free samples of healthy food. Since I got great results, I decided to talk at a bake sale the next day. I made fruit skewers to sell instead of unhealthy meat-based snacks. I also showed information videos in school and put quotes supporting a vegetarian lifestyle on our school's information TV's.

My biggest challenge was the day my friends and I went outside of the school giving out flyers and a lady came up speaking in French ... So I took my IPod and I Google translated everything and I gave it to her ... I apologized to her and I told her that we are sorry that we only speak mostly Spanish and some English....

I have learned to explain information about vegetarianism in my lunch period so I get to explain it in Spanish as well for the special ed students and to the bilingual that we are concerned about the treatment of animals. When I go to college I would like to create a program for vegetarians... I would love to have the honor to give a speech in English and Spanish for all the people out there who don't know how to feed their body with healthy food.

My biggest strength is my parents. They are the reason why I fight for education. They motivated me to give the best. They are always giving me advice to do well in life since they didn't get to study and have an education. All of this motivates me to give my 100% in school... One of my goals is to become a nutritionist and work in a school teaching students how to eat healthy and how to live a better life ... I know that in my school I'm one of the few people who is going for it and I have received a lot of pessimism from my peers, but that didn't stop me because I want to make a difference in my school. I had to put a lot of effort in English because it's challenging and very difficult for me because it's not my native language, but that didn't stop me from working hard.

The deadline for The Vegetarian Resource Group college scholarship contest is February 20 of each year. Over $20,000 is awarded annually. For details, see [ http://www.vrg.org/student/scholar.htm ]

4) LOOKING FOR VEGAN GYMNASTIC GRIPS

The Vegetarian Resource Group received the note below and was wondering if anyone has suggestions. If you know about the existence of vegan gymnastic grips, please send the information to vrg@vrg.org

Hello! I've seen numerous posts with an inquiry about vegan gymnastics grips and was wondering if you ever found a solution? We're a vegan family with two daughters in gymnastics with the same concerns as you. Any insights would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you, Jean Davis

5) HAVE ANY VEGANS TRAVELED TO ICELAND?

A member is traveling to Iceland, and was looking for information about being vegan in that country. She read a few blogs, but they have been hit and miss. If anyone has been to Iceland, please share your experiences about eating vegan there. Thank you. Please send details to vrg@vg.org

6) ZOES KITCHEN VEGAN OPTIONS

By Jeanne Yacoubou, MS

Founded in 1995 by Zoë Cassimus using many of her original recipes from growing up in the South surrounded by her family's Mediterranean traditions, Zoës Kitchen features Mediterranean-inspired food in over 150 locations in seventeen states mostly throughout the southern, south central and southeastern United States. Visit [ http://zoeskitchen.com/Location.aspx ] for a restaurant locator.

A menu page on Zoës website [ http://zoeskitchen.com/nutritional-info.aspx ] states: Click here to view our Gluten Free and Vegetarian and Vegan menu items. An icon consisting of a small circle with a "V" inside it appears next to a few menu options. On the website, the circle appears black. Nowhere on Zoës website could we find vegan or vegetarian definitions.

The VRG asked Zoës whether the black icon represented "vegetarian" or "vegan" and how those terms were used. We received this response:

A "V" laid in an orange circle denotes vegan and a "V" in a green square denotes vegetarian.

A Zoës website page with links to local menus shows the orange and green icons but does not define the terms. For example (at the bottom):
http://zoeskitchen.com/menu/NC-H-CAT-NC-H-500-NC.aspx?address=10300%20Little%20Patuxent%20Pkwy.&address2=Suite%203140&city=Columbia&State=MD&Zip=21044&phone=%20410-997-0124&menuurl=https://zoeskitchen.alohaorderonline.com/StartOrder.aspx?SelectSite=207#tab2 ]

In order to be more helpful to readers we followed up with Zoës by asking again how they define "vegan" and "vegetarian." The Content and Community Coordinator at Zoës Kitchen stated:

After further research and collaboration with our Food & Beverage team, we unfortunately do not have the resources to answer the additional follow-up questions at this time. As we continue to grow, our resources will continue to expand - but right now we cannot provide you with the information you are looking for.

We will be sure to keep these questions top of mind moving forward.

Initially we contacted Zoës Kitchen in December 2014 and their same-day response from their Director of Brand Lauren Hopkins to our inquiry about doing a feature story on their vegan menu items was very positive:

That sounds great! I'm happy to help. If you'd like to send questions my way, I'm happy to get answers back to you.
Thanks!

At the end of April 2015 we received answers to most of our initial questions in an email sent by Kari Kriewald.

Here is what she found out for The VRG:

  • Zoës Kitchen offers hummus on its menu which "is vegan by itself" according to Zoës. The Hummus Salad Plate includes a Greek salad and cucumber raita. Patrons may request that the feta be left off of the salad. The cucumber raita is made with yogurt.
  • Local menus list other hummus options. The Basil Pesto Hummus is listed as vegetarian. The Red Pepper Hummus is listed as vegan. More description on the hummus offerings appear at this link from Zoës website:
    http://zoeskitchen.com/About-Zoes/News/news-archive-2015/News-Article-02112015.aspx ]
  • Bread products served at Zoës include a flatbread pita and a pocket pita. We learned from Zoës that
    Our flatbread pita is vegetarian; however our pocket pita ...does contain L-cysteine...I want to state this is based on our current spec items and is subject to change at any given time.
The VRG asked Zoës about the source of the L-cysteine but the restaurant chain did not give an answer. Zoës also didn't define "vegetarian" used in the paragraph above.

We requested more information on bread products that could be ordered with hummus by asking

  • Can the flatbread be ordered with the hummus? Does the flatbread contain dairy, egg, honey, lard or L-cysteine? What would the flatbread be served with?
  • Is there another bread product served with the hummus and is it vegan?

Zoës didn't provide more detail. Concerned diners should ask a store manager for more information. Asking to view the product package may help; a follow-up call to the supplier may be necessary when in doubt.

Zoës Kitchen offers a Veggie Kabob which is noted with the round icon on the Under 500 menu but not so noted on the gluten-free menu. The vegan icon also appears next to this entree on some local menus. The VRG asked Zoës about kitchen protocols in order to avoid cross-contamination with animal products for vegan menu dishes and learned that

Before prepping any new item we use procedures for the team to use clean and sanitized cutting boards, prep space, and utensils...The vegetables are sliced and skewered by hand.

Zoës also told us that the white beans served with the Veggie Kabob or as a side dish are prepared following the same kitchen protocol to avoid cross-contamination with non-vegan items. There is a vegan icon on the menus next to the bean side dish.

There is a Spinach Roll-Up at Zoës which does not have a vegan or vegetarian symbol beside its name on the Simply 500 menu but does have a vegetarian icon on the local menu. We asked if this menu item could be ordered without cheese. Zoës replied by email that

Unfortunately the spinach rollups cannot be ordered without cheese. Our current tortillas do not contain [dairy, honey or L-cysteine]; however, keep in mind it is possible our distributor could provide us a substitute product in case of an out of stock situation and we cannot guarantee this statement would hold true for any sub product. Although all subs are to be approved, it is possible a product could be subbed without us knowing ahead of time.

The Veggie Pizza at Zoës also does not have a vegan or vegetarian icon by its name on the Simply 500 menu but does have a vegetarian symbol on the local menu. The VRG wanted to know if it could be ordered as a vegan option. We learned that

Yes it can be ordered without cheese, but they would also have to leave off the spinach mix because it contains cheese. Our flatbread pita is vegetarian; however our pocket pita which is what they use to make the pizza does contain L-cysteine. Again, I want to state this is based on our current spec items and are subject to change at any given time...

Currently, our mozzarella and feta cheese uses microbial enzymes not animal-based; again, subject to change if we change suppliers or a sub is sent to the stores.

Regarding soups, side dishes and sandwiches:
  • "The tomato bisque is a cream-based soup...we do not have a vegan option."
  • "We do not use mayonnaise in our potato salad." There is a vegan icon next to it on the menu.
  • "Neither the marinated slaw nor the pasta salad can be ordered without feta cheese because it's "in the mixture."
  • "The Pimento Half-Classic sandwich is made with "cheddar cheese and mayonnaise."

When asked which salad dressing is free of all animal products including egg, dairy, animal flavors, seafood extracts, and honey we were told that "Our Greek dressing is vegan."

A Special Diets page on the website provides an interactive tool to identify menu options appropriate for someone who wishes to avoid certain ingredients. [ http://www.nutritionix.com/zoes-kitchen/menu/special-diets/premium?allergens=eggs,fish,milk,shellfish ]

The VRG used this tool to identify menu items without eggs, milk, fish and shellfish. "Meat" or "poultry" were not possible exclusions since they are not on the FALCPA list (Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004
http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/Allergens/ucm106890.htm ]

Thus, the generated list included a few items containing chicken as well as those without eggs, milk, fish and shellfish. Ingredients are also listed on this page for some items (click through "more info" located beside the green dots on the right side of the screen) although it is not clear from the ingredients list themselves if each component is all-vegetable (e.g., red pepper pesto base). Diners may wish to ask a store manager about any questionable ingredient before ordering.

The local menu links found on the locator page after selecting a specific restaurant [ http://zoeskitchen.com/Location.aspx ] and the allergen tool results generated by our search described above included the following listings: Orzo Tabouli, Quinoa Salad -No Feta and Red Pepper Hummus.

On local menus the vegan symbol only appears next to the Red Pepper Hummus while the Orzo Tabouli Salad and Quinoa Salad show the vegetarian icon. The local menus state that the Orzo Tabouli Salad includes feta cheese.

When filtered in different ways the allergen tool lists "Orzo Tabouli" and "Tabouli Salad." Only the former appears when filtered for egg and milk absence and also when filtered for milk absence alone. Both are listed when filtered for egg absence alone. It is not clear whether they are the same menu item or not.

No further information is available on these menu options. Patrons should consult with a store manager if interested.
