Vegan Options

At Queen’s Hospitality Services, we take pride in the services that we offer for students and staff with allergies and alternate diets. We have seen a rise in the vegan and vegetarian populations on campus, and with this alternative diet can come difficulty in finding appropriate food items to fit your lifestyle. Queen’s Hospitality Services aims to be inclusive and provide food security for all staff and student on campus. Below is a comprehensive list of vegan options across campus at Hospitality Services locations, Market Street in Botterell Hall and The Tea Room. We are working with the Queen’s Sustainability Office to promote an inclusive eating environment and the environmental benefits of a vegan lifestyle.

In general, eating a low-meat or vegetarian/vegan diet is environmentally beneficial because of the lower embodied carbon within plant-based diets. Canada’s agricultural sector is a significant source of GHG emissions. Official estimates attribute 10% of the nation’s total carbon footprint to farming activities.  For 2015, this amounted to 59 megatonnes (Mt) of CO2e (National Inventory Report 1990-2015).  To put this in perspective, these emissions are equivalent to 12.5 million cars driven for one year (US Environmental Protection Agency, 2017). Of this total, roughly 75% of the emissions are linked to livestock (National Inventory Report 1990-2015).
