We had not to forbid omnivores to eat vegetarian or vegan meals.

We just had to take care of leaving enough food for vegetarians and
vegans, which would have not happened if too many non veg* had been
eating that food.

So, we indeed suggested non-veg* to only eat veg food at the end of
meals, when there was no longer any reason to fear missing food.

Thankfully, in general, the kitchen adapted fairly well to all needs
and I think that most will agree that food was well managed this year.
