Abstract

Poverty is a multidimensional concept. It is determined by the level of income and several other factors that guide the standard of living of a human being. The health of a human being also determines the standard of living. A person identified as poor needs to have nutritious food for his or her health which can reduce poverty and improve the standard of living of the person. Often, such nutrition can come by being a vegetarian though it can be more costly to purchase nutritious vegetables. With this dichotomy, the chapter raises the question of whether a poor person can be a vegetarian in order to address the social dimension of sustainability.
