Special Dietary Needs

Vegan and Vegetarian

Labeling

Purdue Dining & Culinary Residential dining locations label food items as vegan and vegetarian using an icon. These icons can be seen on our mobile app, Menus Online , Net Nutrition , and service line item cards. Our online resources can help students find vegan and vegetarian offerings at the Residential dining locations. 

Disclaimer: We label our fried foods based on the ingredient list on the packaging. Certain cooking methods like deep-frying may alter an individual’s perception of whether or not an item is considered vegan or vegetarian. Please ask a dining employee about the preparation of your food item if you have concerns about how a food is labeled.

Dietary Station

All five dining courts will offer a complete vegan meal at lunch and dinner. The menu will not contain any animal products (meat, fish, eggs, dairy, gelatin, or honey). Students will receive a full, balanced meal at this station including a plant-based protein, starch/grain, and hot vegetable.

Kosher

The Hillel Foundation in collaboration with Purdue Dining & Culinary provides kosher meals for students with a meal plan. Hillel offers dinners for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and a Break-the-Fast at the conclusion of Yom Kippur. Hillel also offers multiple meals during Passover. Students with a Purdue Dining & Culinary Meal Plan may dine at the Hillel Foundation for these meals and have their meal plan charged. For more information about the Hillel Foundation, please visit their website at http://www.purduehillel.org/ .

Halal

  • All of the lamb served in the dining courts is halal.
