The first fully plant-based lunch has recently been served at the last Oxfordshire County Council meeting, after a successful cabinet vote in favour to adopt a vegan only menu.

Ian Middleton, Green Councillor for Kidlington South expressed his thanks in a tweet directed to Oxfordshire County Council, stating it was ‘an absolute triumph’. Councillor Kate Gregory agreed that “It was great”.

Accompanied images showed vegan sandwiches, pastries, platters of fruit, and cake.
