Earlier this year, California became the first state to financially support plant-based school meals.
The Santa Ana Unified School District has dedicated one day a week to serving up plant-based food on Plant-Based Wednesdays.
Jonathan Park had to come up with plant-based meals teenage kids would like: He is the certified chef for the district and in charge of the high school menus. He has created the plant-based meals for the district’s new initiative.
Some items on Wednesday’s menu include lentil picadillo and a buffalo hummus cauliflower wrap.
