49ers Home Field Offers 14 Cruelty-Free Dishes

Game goers can nosh on BBQ Jackfruit sandwiches and vegan curry this upcoming 49ers football season.

The San Francisco 49ers’ Levi Stadium is making vegan dining an easy endeavor for cruelty-free football fans. The Bay Area home field will serve 14 vegan and 26 vegetarian menu items, with at least one plant-based dish at each of its concession stands. Offerings will include a navy bean curry, a Portobello bao bun, and a BBQ Jackfruit sandwich. Each vegan menu item is an original recipe, created by the stadium’s food service provider Centerplate as a way to cater to San Francisco’s penchant for diverse and delicious food. “[Our intent was to] design a hospitality program to usher in a new era of fan experience, and to match the Bay Area’s diverse culture,” said Centerplate’s President and CEO Des Hague earlier this week. Also, a majority of the food served at Levi Stadium will be made in-house with 80 percent of its offerings prepared from ingredients sourced in California
