Happy National Vegetarian Month
National Vegetarian Month

October is National Vegetarian Month! Increasing your intake of vegetables is beneficial for your health and great for our environment. Look for the leaf symbol on our menus in all of our eateries to try something vegetarian. Not only is the produce fresh, but Spartan Shops only sources local and seasonal vegetables!

This month’s featured eatery is Grounded Café! Located in the Boccardo Business Courtyard. It's the only eatery on campus with a menu entirely made up of organic, vegetarian, and vegan items. Check out Grounded!
