Carnegie Mellon University offers healthier food items

The Pennsylvania university is focusing on expanding vegan and vegetarian options across all on-campus dining halls.

PITTSBURGH—In the January 2014 issue of Dining Dish, Housing and Dining Services announced two important changes to the healthy food options on campus: extended hours at Evgefstos and new healthy menu options available at The Underground.

Evgefstos features vegan and vegetarian options not available elsewhere on campus. The eatery, however, was not open for dinner during the fall semester, and was only open until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

During Dining Services Advisory Council (DSAC) meetings, members of Undergraduate Student Senate brought attention to the popularity of Evgefstos and the demand for extended hours. Dining Services responded to the feedback by extending the location’s hours until 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
