Does the institution offer diverse, complete-protein vegan dining options during every meal?:

A brief description of the vegan dining program:

We’re the first U.S. college to offer an all-organic, vegetarian, freshly prepared menu — one reason why our students are healthier when they graduate than when they enroll.

In addition to being 100% vegetarian, our cafeteria offers vegan options such as whole grains, beans, tofu, tempeh, nut butters, and soy milk to ensure that our vegan students have everything they need in their diet.

Whereas most university food service operations rely heavily on pre-prepared and frozen foods, we make our dishes from fresh ingredients each day. The result: our meals are more nutritious and delicious.

A local organic farm provides some of the produce for campus meals. We can order the vegetables at their peak of ripeness — and serve them the same day.
