Vegan station a hit at Youngstown State

Station also attracts non-vegan students seeking healthy options.

Nov. 12—This semester, the dining hall at Youngtown State university, in Ohio, began offering vegan and vegetarian options for lunch and dinner at its Green Cuisine station.

“I’m looking to eat healthier and to eat better food,” said Vera, a freshman from the city who is studying theater. On a day this week, she tried a chickpea and couscous burger with red peppers, peas and potato and leek soup.

The dining commons began offering the vegan and vegetarian station this semester and Edward Krol, executive chef, says it’s been a hit.
