Each of the 8 core stations in the Monson Dining Center offer vegan menu options. A "Vegan" sticker will help you identify items on a stations daily menu that are vegan, so your options will change daily.

Some items are available by request, so please feel free to ask our chefs to help you find these items. Our staff is trained in proper food handling procedures to prevent cross-contamination.


Fresh hand fruit (apples, bananas, oranges, etc.) are available at every meal and fresh cut fruit is available during breakfast.

Hot cereal and toppings are available at breakfast in the soup wells. These sometimes contain dairy depending on the hot cereal so asking the chef is recommended.
