A vegan way of living?

The Year 9 and Year 10 Food groups had the pleasure of a visit from an education speaker, Lynne Snowden from Animal Aid last week to help consolidate the topic of Vegetarian and vegans.

Did you know that a meat eater will eat on average 4,500 fish, 80 turkeys and 30 sheep in their lifetime!

Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation.

A dairy farm with 2,500 cows produces the same amount of waste as a city of 411,000 people.

These are just the environmental issues we have been looking at. We hope the meat we eat has been reared and transported in humane conditions but the Food Standard Agency reported  a total of 9,511 animal welfare breaches between July 2017 and June 2018 – of which 4,445 were the most serious.

The Year 9’s and 10’s have already been cooking some beautiful vegan dishes including savoury rice, spicy lentil soup and naan and spinach, potato and chickpea curry. As a result of Lynne’s visit, they will be busy cooking more!
