Nation's First All-Vegan School Menu Coming to Los Angeles

Food

Leaders at the Calabasas, CA-based Muse School campus dedicated themselves to sustainability about four years ago with zero-emissions buildings, classrooms designed to maximize light and more. Now, the school plans on becoming the first all-vegan school in the U.S.

The school already has about 50 garden beds around its campus, and by next year students will eat the vegetables they grow five days a week and stick to a vegan diet. That would make Muse the first school in the country to do so, ABC7 in Los Angeles reported. The kids currently have one plant-based lunch per week. 

"They're in the gardens, they're getting dirty, they're planting the seeds, they're watching the vegetables grow," said Suzy Amis Cameron, the school's co-founder and wife of director James Cameron.

"We walk our walk in so many areas and this just takes us to another level."
