Parkview Field not only houses some of the Padres best prospects, but it is considered to be one of the best when it comes to its vegetarian food.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) ranked Parkview Field as the sixth most vegetarian-friendly minor league ballpark in 2012.
The ballpark was selected as a first-time honoree for its outstanding variety of meat-free, dairy-free and vegan meals.
Parkview Field home of the Fort Wayne TinCaps, the Padres Class-A affiliate, has an extensive menu of vegetarian food, like a black-bean burger, a veggie burrito, vegetable wraps, fresh fruit trays, salads and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
“We pride ourselves in our food, our extensive food options and in making our menus friendly for all. We do not want to have anyone’s experience lessened because of an unavailable food choice or because of a dietary need. We believe that we serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because people; especially children, enjoy them. Not because they satisfy a need,” said Scott Kammerer, Culinary Director for the Fort Wayne TinCaps on the TinCaps website.
To be ranked on Peta’s list, Peta takes into consideration the variety of meat-free meals with point values assigned to those different items and each minor league stadium is based on cumulative points.
