COLLEGES AND CAMPS
SERVING VEGETARIAN FOOD

What happens when young vegetarians want to go away to camp or college? The Vegetarian Resource Group conducted a survey of institutions offering vegetarian or vegan food. Across the country meatless eaters are able to learn and have fun while still finding nutritious meals.

For example, Dominican in California offers vegan pizzas, vegan enchiladas, tomatoes stuffed with couscous, Swiss Chard with lentils, and black beans with fennel. Wesleyan University in Ohio features hummus, tabouleh, fajitas, bulgur pilaf, stuffed zucchini, risotto, grilled veggie sandwiches, and bean burgers. Lewis and Clark in Oregon even serves seitan and tempeh dishes.

Multonomah Bible College fills up their students with Hungarian noodle bake, quesadillas, and broccoli quiche. At the University of Wisconsin find veggie strudel, black bean pizza, polenta with cheese, lasagna stir-fries, and Italian tortillas. Dishes at schools will of course change according to demand.

To obtain a copy of Colleges and Camps Serving Vegetarian Options (8 pages) send 5 first class stamps to The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203.

The Vegetarian Resource Group also publishes Foodservice Update, a quarterly publication featuring quanity recipes and tips for those serving food in institutions. It contains interviews with leaders in the industry, quantity recipes, vegan baking, product reviews, and more. To receive a sample copy of Foodservice Update, send a SASE (with two stamps) to the Vegetarian Resouce Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203. You can also order Foodservice Update for just $20 a year. Visit our Foodservice Update website at www.vrg.org/fsupdate/

Also available is our Quantity Recipe Packet, with over 25 vegan recipes designed for 25 and 50 servings. They include nutritional analyses, as well as serving and garnishing suggestions. Also included is a list of vegetarian food suppliers, who pack in quantity sizes. This packet costs $15 for non-students and $5 for students.

The Vegetarian Resource Group is a non-profit organization, dedicated to educating the public about vegetarian and vegan diets. Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or fowl. Vegans are vegetarians who also do not use other animal products such as dairy or eggs. For more information about meatless diets send a self addressed stamped envelope to The Vegetarian Resource Group, P.O. Box 1463, Baltimore, MD 21203, or visit the VRG web site at www.vrg.org
