Vegan Society launches guide for prisoners

10/07/2018 - 07:00
UK charity the Vegan Society has released a brand new guide for prisoners outlining their rights and nutritional advice on maintaining vegan while serving.

Backed by the International Vegan Rights Alliance, the booklet is divided into two sections – one for prisoners about their “rights, buying or requesting vegan products, and resolving grievances,” and one for staff with nutritional advice, catering tips and benefits, and ingredients to avoid.

Continuing to help vegans in ‘challenging situations,’ the charity said it is sending the booklet free of charge to prisoners and staff and ‘in need of practical information.’

Company dietitian Heather Russell said: “It’s easy to meet your nutritional needs on a vegan diet if you’re well informed, but it may be more challenging in a prison setting.

“We hear from prison staff who require practical advice on catering for vegans and prisoners who are unsure about their rights, so we’re delighted to be launching an all-encompassing resource.

“The Vegan Society is the only organisation helping vegan prisoners in this way, and we’re keen to make our guide available to as many prisons as possible.”
