Hannah West, Alliance for Animals’ Vegan Outreach Coordinator and Mad City Vegan Fest coordinator knows “vegan” in Madison. . .
Vegan students feel welcome in Madison. That’s according to Hannah West, a music education student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. West, 22, is involved in several groups working to bring more vegan choices to the UW campus and area restaurants, but says Madison is already ahead of the curve when it comes to vegan dining.
“When you go to a restaurant in Madison, even one that’s not explicitly vegetarian or vegan, there’s usually a vegan option, which provides vegans with a positive experience and a sense of being supported in their choices,” says West.
