LA Councilman Introduces Law Requiring Entertainment Venues to Offer Vegan Food
VICE (12/10/18) Castrodale, Jelisa
Los Angeles city councilman Paul Koretz has recently proposed a motion that all sports arenas and other public entertainment venues be obliged to serve fans vegan food, with at least one vegan protein option added to all of their menus. Koretz has stressed that such moves should help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. "We only have a few years to dramatically drop our greenhouse gas production and production of beef items, especially, generates so much methane," he said. "Without reducing our beef consumption, it's going to be very difficult for us to reduce climate change." Should Koretz's motion pass, Los Angeles will be the first U.S. city to force entertainment venues into serving meat-free snacks. Koretz is expected to present his motion to a special committee. If it is approved, it will be submitted to the full city council. If approved by a majority, the motion will be sent on to the city's attorney to draft a law, and not providing vegan food offerings could be outlawed by next February.
