University of North Texas Dining Hall Goes Vegan

unt1.jpgAccording to a recent survey, vegetarianism has gone up 50 percent and veganism has doubled on college campuses in the last four years. Yet another sign that the vegan revolution is in full swing, the "Mean Greens" dining hall at the University of North Texas is going 100% vegan this fall.

In an article featured in the North Texas Daily, Ken Botts, director of special programs for UNT Dining Services, said the number one request he has gotten from students is for more vegan options. Responding to student demand, and for the first time in UNT history, cruelty will not be an ingredient in the grub at the Mean Greens dining hall. Instead, the cafeteria will be serving up veganized versions of classic staples, such as pizza and paninis, along with a selection of new recipes using fresh, wholesome ingredients.

Vegan and vegetarian students can now bid adieu to scanty salads and hummus sandwiches, while the rest of the student body will have the opportunity to explore all that cruelty-free vegan food has to offer.
