A story in posted on May 9 and written by Charlotte Pointing reports that the 2024 French Open, US Open, and Wimbledon tennis tournaments—collectively called the Grand Slam—will be offering lots more vegan food fare for spectators and athletes alike.

Here are excerpts from the story:

“The Grand Slam, set to start at the end of May, is going to be just as gripping as ever, as will Wimbledon (set to kick off in July), of course, and the US Open, which will take place in August and September.

“If you’re set to attend any of these events, you’re going to need some serious fuel between all of the excitement. Luckily, this year’s Grand Slam tournaments are offering quite a range of vegan options—from buckwheat pancakes to strawberries and dairy-free cream.

“With the French Open kicking off in May, and the Olympics starting at the end of July, it’s a big year for Paris. The latter has already proven that it’s going to be a vegan-friendly event, and it seems the French Open might offer plant-based options, too.

“If you’re familiar with Wimbledon, you might know already that the London tennis tournament is famous for its delicious strawberries and cream offering. And great news: if you’re dairy-free, you don’t have to miss out. Since 2019, Wimbledon has offered vegan cream as an option.

“The US Open, which always takes place in Queens, New York, doesn’t begin until the end of the summer, but if you’re already planning your food choices, the tournament has provided a handy list of its dining options on its website.
