A brief description of the vegan dining program, including availability, sample menus, signage and any promotional activities (e.g. “Meatless Mondays”):
Loyola accommodates a wide variety of special dietary needs, including vegan dining, upon request. The two main dining halls offer vegan entrees and the sides do not include animal-derived ingredients (including milk, eggs, and dairy products). These dining halls also offer "Meatless Mondays" when more vegetarian options are offered every week to promote healthier eating and eco-conscious choices.
A brief description of other efforts the institution has made to reduce the impact of its animal-derived food purchases:
Aramark Dining has taken a number of steps to provide food options to vegan, vegetarian and other intentional dinners. These can be found on their CampusDish website.
