School 244 in Flushing, Queens, becomes first public school in nation to serve only vegetarian meals

 



There's no "mystery meat” at one Queens public elementary school.
Public School 244 in Flushing is the first public school in the nation to serve all-vegetarian meals for breakfast and lunch, according to city education officials.
Crystal Gu, schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott, and Arianna Francisco enjoy a vegetarian lunch. Walcott says the all-vegetarian food system should be replicated at schools across the city and nation.
Chefs at the Active Learning Elementary School have swapped chicken, turkey and ham for black beans, tofu and falafel, and kids are digging in with delight.
"This is so good!” squealed 9-year-old Marian Satti, devouring her black bean and cheddar cheese quesadilla Tuesday at lunch. "I’m enjoying that it didn’t have a lot of salt in it. ”
On the menu is black bean and cheddar quesadillas with salsa and roasted potatoes.
The kids are digging into the vegetarian fare with gusto. "This is so good!” squealed 9-year-old Marian Satti.
