The city council of Freiburg in Breisgau, Germany, has voted to remove animal-people meat and fish from all state school cafeterias and introduce an exclusively vegetarian menu. State nurseries will also be included in the decision, which goes into effect in 2023. The scenic and historic university city is located in the Black Forest and is known as “the green city of Germany” for its environmental consciousness. The decision will have a significant, favorable influence on society and the environment, as the cafeterias serve some 500,000 meals per year to students.
Meanwhile, the official Freiburg council website referenced the cost-saving benefits of switching to vegetarianism, in the face of rising food costs. Animal-people meat consumption in Germany has been steadily declining, with 2021 setting a new record low.
Great work, Freiburg city council, and Germany! Your wise decisions lead the world to a future of harmony and sustainability, in Celestial grace.
