During the week of October 2, Food Services highlighted vegan lunch options on campus each day. These lunches included local tempeh and sweet potatoes, creative salads and a smoothie from Blended. Food Services aknowledges that students have restricted diets, and wanted to eat a week in vegan and dairy free students' shoes. The greatest takeaway is that sometimes to get exactly what you want, you many need to get creative. Follow Food Services on Instagram to see more projects like this one.
Food Services participates in Meatless Mondays, an international campaign that encourages people to go meatless one day a week. Meatless Mondays are beneficial for your health and decreases the environmental impact of your food. Eating a plant based diet, even once a week, can decrease the water used in food production, reduce greenhouse gases produced in farming and reduce the fuel needed in farming.
Food Services is committed to providing an inclusive dining experience.
