Berlin’s university canteens go almost meat-free as students prioritise climate

The 34 outlets catering to students at four universities will offer only a single meat option four days a week

Students at universities in Berlin will from this winter swap currywurst and schnitzel for seeds and pulses, as campus canteens in the German capital make heavy cuts to their meat and fish options.

The 34 canteens and cafes catering to Berlin’s sizeable student population at four different universities will offer from October a menu that is 68% vegan, 28% vegetarian, and 2% fish-based, with a single meat option offered four days a week.

Across Germany, university canteens and cafeterias currently offer 30-50% vegetarian options after years of rising demand, estimated Stefan Grob, a spokesperson for Deutsches Studentenwerk, the umbrella organisation of student support providers. “But in Berlin, you have a critical mass.”

In 2019, Berlin universities fed about 5.6 million meals to students in its canteens. That same year a survey found that 13.5% of Berlin’s student population described themselves as keeping a vegan diet, compared with just 1.6% in the country as a whole, while a further 33% said they were vegetarians.

...Is the "2% fish-based" the single meat-containing dish, or are they idiots who for some reason don't think fish count as meat?

Anyway, Hitler would be proud that the time has finally come for institutions to begin phasing out meat-based diets!
