NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City elementary school has adopted an all-vegetarian menu, serving kids tofu wraps and veggie chili.
Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott says he’s proud of the “trailblazing” school.
The Queens school has 400 students in pre-kindergarten through third grade. It wanted to offer healthy food options and started serving a vegetarian lunch three times a week and then increased it to four times a week. It recently went all-vegetarian.
Principal Robert Groff said Tuesday the kids gravitated toward veggie offerings, including black beans and cheddar quesadillas served with salsa and roasted potatoes.
