Healthy Variety and Choice
Columbia Dining provides vegetarian and vegan options daily, both in the dining halls and retail outlets. Menus also accommodate food allergies and special diets. Fifty percent of meals served in the dining halls are vegetarian and vegan. Meatless Mondays is observed weekly at Ferris Booth Commons.
Food is stamped with allergen identification labels that indicate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free items, as well as those containing egg or dairy. Each dining hall has a separate table containing raw nuts, seeds and peanut butter.
Columbia Dining‘s Registered Dietitian, Christina Lee, meets with students regularly to provide customized meal planning, facilitate one-on-one consultations with the Executive Chef, and educate students on balanced nutrition.
