Spork Foods Helps Bring Vegan Menus to UCLA Campus

The vegan sisters and professional cooks are helping the college’s dining team create vegan offerings.


The University of California Los Angeles has long been a vegetarian-friendly school—the campus participates in both Meatless Mondays and the self-organized Beefless Thursdays—but its vegan food is getting a major re-vamp. UCLA’s Executive Chef Roger Pigozzi recently asked vegan sisters Heather Goldberg and Jenny Engel, who run the wildly popular LA-based vegan cooking school Spork Foods, to help them improve their vegan offerings via chef training. In order to better understand UCLA’s vegan population, Pigozzi also required his executive management team to eat vegan for one week.
