William and Mary adds new Veggin’ Out dining station
The station serves vegan and vegetarian options, including pasta.
Sept. 19—Ben Weingartner ’16 has visited Marketplace’s new Veggin’ Out station four times. He enjoys, among other offerings, the station’s steamed carrots, veggie burgers and sliced potatoes. Weingartner said he has had a good experience every time he has been there, and he’s not even vegetarian.
“I just like the variety. It’s very different, but very good,” Weingartner said. “I hope they continue to keep this because I know it can be hard for [people with special diets] otherwise.”
Veggin’ Out was added to the food court over the summer as part of Dining Services’ continued efforts to accommodate students’ varied diets. The full-time vendor serves solely vegan and vegetarian options, replacing last year’s Home Zone station.
The station incorporates fresh vegetarian and vegan ingredients, which chefs cook on a visible stovetop. This helps students know exactly what they are eating and how it is prepared.
