NYU Dining Hall Goes Vegan for Earth Day

Lipton dining hall will serve environmentally friendly plant-based fare due to student demand.

New York University’s (NYU) Lipton dining hall will serve an all-vegan menu from April 23 until April 25 in honor of Earth Day. The three-day, plant-based initiative was spearheaded by the school’s animal advocacy group, Animal Welfare Collective (AWS), in collaboration with the Humane Society of the United States, which met with food supplier Aramark to help remove animal products from the hall’s menu. The program will serve as a test-run for NYU students—who have expressed interest in having more plant-based options, according to on-campus surveys. “I hope that it’s going to be a great experience in the short run for everyone—for NYU Dining, for Aramark, for the students,” AWC president Anami Nguyen said, “and I hope that is going to increase excitement, because it is something new, and something fresh, and something sustainable.” Other vegan Earth Day initiatives around the country include a vegan train ride scheduled to roll out from Boyertown to Pottstown in Pennsylvania this weekend.
