Jewish School's Lunch Menu Applauded by PETA

The Jewish Community High School of the Bay in San Francisco, California is nominated for the 2010 Most Veg-Friendly Cafeteria honour. The award is given by PETA2, the youth branch of the animal rights group.

Each year, the organization recognizes schools in the U.S. and Canada that offer healthier lunch options. The Jewish Community High School of the Bay features a kosher and all-vegetarian menu that includes a falafel bar, vegetarian sushi and a salad bar.

The Canadian nominees are St. George's School in Vancouver, Trafalgar Castle School in Whitby, Branksome Hall in Toronto, The Study in Westmount, Quebec, and St. Michaels University School in Victoria.

People are encouraged to vote online. U.S. and Canadian winners will be announced on May 3. For more information, visit www.peta2.com.
