From the Vegan Outreach blog:
In a 2005-2006 feedback survey among college students at campuses that Bon Appétit oversees, an average of 8 percent said that they were vegetarian, and less than 1 percent identified themselves as vegan. The 2009-2010 survey, however, had very different results: 12 percent identified themselves as vegetarian and 2 percent said that they follow a vegan diet.
This is a 50% increase in vegetarians in just four years — and a doubling of vegans!
Wow! Everyone out there doing vegan education is making a difference! It’s working!
Take a look at how fun and easy it is. Here are some photos from my group‘s tabling events:
By the way, as of a few weeks ago, our group surpassed the 10,000 leaflets mark! We’ve handed out over 10,000 pieces of vegan literature!
