Offer more vegan/gluten free snack options at the library

I have noticed that the Dorset Flapjacks (2 of which were accidentally vegan) have stopped being sold at the library cafe, leaving only crisps or nakd bars, when there's a variety of cakes, cookies and doughnuts available to non-vegans. As many of these options are prepackaged and presumably ordered in from elsewhere, would it not be possible to stock vegan/gluten free alternatives to some of these items so more people are able to eat them?

Hi, to confirm, the cafe in the Library is Starbucks who are offering vegan and gluten-free snacks. I can request that more are available but if there's anything specific, please do let me know.

Hello, This is the response I have received, "Starbucks café in the Library currently serves vegan and gluten-free foods and snacks. They are open 8am-6pm, Mon-Fri and 10am-6pm Saturday & Sunday. Do you know if the query is about the vending machines? If it is, that’s an external contract that is managed by Estates so you might be better raising the issue directly with them". I responded asking for the contact details for Estates, but now I've reread this submission, I'm going to ask again to ensure they understand we're talking about the Library cafe and not Starbucks

Hello! Thank you for the submission. I have now raised this with the Library team and I am awaiting their response.
