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

A brief description of the vegan dining program:
In all five main dining halls at every meal, there are vegan options available. Everyday in the Lulu Chow Wang dining room, there is a raw food station, where a high protein, raw vegan meal is prepared using fresh ingredients. One of our dining halls, Pomeroy, is completely kosher and vegetarian, so there are many high-protein, hot vegan options there as well. There is also a hot vegan station at Tower dining hall, and all cafeterias have fully stocked salad bars, which are mostly vegan and contain beans, lentils, legumes, tofu, and seeds for high protein sources. Dining services serves plain whole grains everyday such as brown rice, millet, quinoa, cous-cous, and whole wheat pasta. Every other day the dining halls serve delicious and popular vegan brownies for a dessert option. Additionally, there is a red serving spoon to signify if a food is vegan.
