Vegan and Vegetarian

Purdue University dining courts and several retail locations label food items as vegan and vegetarian using an icon.

Use the Purdue Mobile Menus App or NetNutrition to find vegan and vegetarian offering at University 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.

Students with a Purdue Dining & Culinary Meal Plan may dine at the Hillel Foundation for these meals and have their meal plan charged.
