Vegan Dining Hall in Texas

The University of North Texas in Denton is unveiling its first ever 100-percent veg dining hall this fall.

While many college dining halls have vegan students heading to the salad bar day after day, the University of North Texas (UNT) is raising standards with its new all-vegan cafeteria. Set to open this fall, Maple Hall cafeteria will serve foods that students already enjoy, such as pizzas and paninis, minus meat, dairy, and other animal by-products. Dining services also revamped the dining hall’s décor, inspired by Texas veg restaurants like Spiral Diner and Cosmic Café. Ken Botts, special program director for the university’s dining services, hopes this change will keep UNT students healthier and encourage more vegetarians to consider attending the university. “We put a lot of effort into designing recipes that would provide protein, the necessary vitamins, and nutrition to a balanced diet,” Botts says, “You’ll get a better balanced opportunity in your food choices at Maple than you would at any other eating establishment in and around campus.”
