British school offers only meat-free lunches as they are “better quality at the same price”
A school in Oxford is only serving meat-free lunches as they are “better quality at the same price” and more sustainable.
Swan School only opened this week but headteacher Kay Wood has decided against offering meat for lunch.
Options include lentil lasagne, frittatas and Quorn sausages.
They do offer meat and fish snacks at break times but not as part of their lunch offering.
Headteacher Kay Wood said:
“We have chosen to serve vegetarian meals at lunchtimes for three main reasons.
“Firstly, it allows us to serve better quality meals for the same money. Secondly, there are huge environmental and sustainability benefits.
“Most importantly, it allows students of all faiths and different dietary requirements to eat together.”
