Veggie dinner with those who are in charge of the cafeterias

← ① We visited the managers who manages all the canteens in Kyoto university and told how important to deal with vegetarian dishes and the meanings to introduce the menus. After that, in order to let them know how delicious food we can have with veggies, we had a vegan dinner party together.


Questionary investigation

← ② We did a questionnaire investigation about to find out how the students think about vegetarian issues and how much need against vegetarian food we have. We gathered answers from 525 people including students and professors and made a report.
