The Animal Welfare Collective at NYU and NYU Dining Services partnered to “veganize” a student dining hall for three days, serving plant-based, environmentally sustainable food in observance with Earth Day.

Anami Nguyen and Aneri Mehta, members of the Animal Welfare Collective, told TheirTurn that feedback they’ve received from non-veg students has been overwhelmingly positive. Even those who were disappointed to discover that the dining was serving exclusively plant-based foods returned to the buffet to refill their plates.

While they wish that NYU’s vegan pop up was permanent, Ms. Nguyen and Ms. Mehta readily acknowledge that the event was ground-breaking and a sign that plant-based diets are becoming more and more mainstream.
