  • Food Poll Summary

    June 14th, 2016
    food, veg  [html]
    Coming out of a discussion on how food affects people's decisions about whether to attend events, I decided to poll the Contra Dancers group:
    If you learned the food served at a dance weekend would be vegetarian-only, would that affect your decision to go? There would be nearby restaurants where people could get other options, but for breakfast/lunch/dinner at the hall it would be all vegetarian.

    5% (20) I wouldn't go to a weekend if it had a "no meat" policy"
    19% (71) I would be less likely to go to a weekend if it had a "no meat" policy
    59% (215) I don't care
    17% (61) I would be more likely to go to a weekend if it had a "no meat" policy
    0% (0) I would only go to a weekend if it had a "no meat" policy

    (poll on fb)

    I think a lot of the people who said they'd be "more likely" to go are saying that they're unhappy with the quality of vegetarian options offered at typical contra dance weekends, as opposed to disliking having people eat meat around them. [1] If I were doing this poll again I would have separated out those two options.


    [1] If I were polling effective altrusits or ethical vegans instead, I would expect avoiding meat consumption and avoiding indicating approval of meat consumption to be motivations for more of the people.
