MANCHESTER STUDENT NOW HAS VEGAN MEALS UNDER THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT 10/15/2018

A Manchester mother has successfully used the Human Rights Act to ensure free vegan lunches are being served at her daughter’s school. Laura Chepner launched a campaign to include vegan school lunch options after Lois, her five-year-old daughter, started attending Ramsbottom’s Hazelhurst Primary in September. She was first told that because her daughter’s dietary requirements were a “lifestyle choice,” unrelated to religion or allergy, the child was not eligible for free school meals – something every child in Reception, Year 1, and Year 2 in England and Wales are entitled to under the universal free school meal system. With the information that veganism is a protected belief under the 2010 Human Rights Act, Chepner gained the support of the school’s headteacher, chef, and Bury Council, who together created a vegan-friendly menu, which includes pizza with vegan cheese and fishless fingers.
