The Regal Vegan is delighted and honored to welcome The Active Learning School (P.S. 244) to our royal court. This public elementary school in Flushing, Queens has become the first in NYC – in fact, the first in the whole country to establish an all-vegetarian school lunch menu.
Principal and co-founder Robert Groff explained, “The founding of our school was based on health and nutrition and teaching kids how to make healthy choices in the belief that they would be more successful academically and in their life.” Bravo, Principal Groff and a huge high five to the New York Coalition for Healthy School Food which has been a gale force in encouraging such change in our schools.
We are so happy to hear that the students at this school have been inspired and excited by all of the healthy lunch ideas. We hope it’s the first of many schools to adopt such a progressive school food program. So if you’re looking for good vegetarian food, get yourself back to the third grade.
At the Regal Vegan, we’ve known for a long time how powerful simple, fresh ingredients are for energizing and nourishing our bodies. That’s why we create gourmet spreads that are loaded with nutrients. They obviously make great snacks for adults, but they also work as nutritious and delicious vegan snacks for kids. So if your kid’s school doesn’t have this remarkable school lunch program, pack up some Faux Gras and Apple sandwiches in their lunch box and be the change you wish to see. Kids also love Basilicotta on bread with tomato sauce – it’s instant pizza!
We look forward to seeing how this inspires schools across the city. Here’s wishing you a happy memorial day, remember your heroes, honor our vets and hey – have some fun!
With love, respect and other nutrients,
