World Vegan Day is a great opportunity to make a conscious choice to show your love for veggies!

If you want to cut down on your meat consumption, but don’t want to go completely vegetarian or vegan, you can try doing “Meatless Mondays”, an initiative started by fashion designer Stella McCartney. “Meatless Monday” encourages entire families, individuals and organizations to go without meat once a week for the betterment of the planet.

Some people cut down on meat consumption for health and economic reasons. There are certainly no shortage of compelling environmental and ethical reasons to reduce meat consumption as well.

We here at Food Services at UTSG love our vegetables, and love our vegetarians and vegans. We have lots of veggie and vegan-friendly dishes on campus for you to enjoy, always made fresh daily by our talented culinary team.
