What YOU Can Do!

SAMPLE LETTER REQUESTING VEG OPTIONS

Dear Restaurant Manager:

I would like to patronize your restaurant more often, but I find my food options limited by a lack of vegan and vegetarian items. If you are confused by these terms, a "vegetarian" diet excludes all animal flesh, including fish and poultry, while a "vegan" diet has no animals products, including eggs and dairy.

Offering more meatless options is good for business. The number of people who routinely eat vegan/vegetarian meals, even if they don't consider themselves vegan or vegetarian, is growing rapidly. According to a survey conducted for the National Restaurant Association, about 20% of people look for a restaurant with vegetarian options, and more than 30% would order non-meat items, if they were made available.

Please consider adding more healthful vegan and vegetarian items, especially entrees, to your menu. Thank you for considering our request.

Sincerely,

Note: You can customize the letter to your preferences. Personally, I always (always) remind restaurant management to be certain to exclude any and all forms of monosodium glutamate (MSG), including MSG under its other names of "autolyzed yeast extract", "hydrolyzed soy protein", "hydrolyzed corn protein" and "natural flavors". Learn more about this pernicious practice of the food industry at theTruth In Labeling website---the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about MSG. The Truth in Labeling Campaign is dedicated to people with problems that once defied medical diagnosis -- people who discovered that elimination of MSG from their diets let them be well.
