The Portuguese government voted Friday, March 3, 2017, in favor of requiring schools to offer vegetarian options to any student. Previously only those with religious or health reasons for choosing vegetarian could receive a vegetarian meal in their school cafeterias. Those with ethical reasons couldn’t. The video link below gives insight into home dining (wine with lunch) and school cafeteria lunches (no paper bags in sight). The political parties behind the law’s creation were: PAN (Pessoas Animais Natureza), BE (Bloco de Esquerda) and Os Verdes.
