VeganVegan Diet

Vegan is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar or honey. Campus Dining has worked first hand with CSUMB vegan students and have asked for assistance in choosing items for a vegan-friendly menu, such as Amy's frozen items at the Otter Express. Brown Rice and legumes are available daily at the Dining Commons, as well as vegetables, tofu, soy beans, and more! Not to mention, every Monday the Vegetarian station highlights Vegan Dishes to celebrate Meatless Monday! Have questions? Contact our Operations Manager at (831) 582-5016.

VegetarianVegetarian Diet

The most common vegetarian are people who do not eat beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or animal of any kind, but do eat eggs and dairy products. Campus Dining has a plethora of vegetarian options, to include the most popular promotion Meatless Monday. Meatless Monday was introduced to CSUMB in August of 2010 as an educational experience, students learned that reducing meat consumption by just 15% could reduce their risk of many life-threatening diseases. In just one month over 500 students pledged to go meatless just one day a week. Not only does the Dining Commons have a permanent Vegetarian Entree Station, every Monday three out of nine entree stations are meatless! Needless to say, your meatless belly will always be excited to visit our Dining Commons!
