Cruel-free( Vegan) Lunch in Schools

The 18th century gave rights to man. In 1786, the French national assembly passed a bill of human rights. The 19th century gave rights to slaves, thanks to Abraham Lincoln, who did not mind facing a civil war. He said slavery is a sin against humanity. The 20th century gave rights to women. The 21st century will give rights to animals. ---

It is so good to know that so many schools have started vegan food option in numerous schools across United States. Recently, I read that seven High Schools  in Los Angeles area have started offering vegan food. And in India, German International School has started offering vegan food!

Our world will be filled with eternal love, peace and prosperity if everyone thrives on vegan fare(Plant-based food).
