World Vegan Day on 1 November 2018 – We take part!


World Vegan Day and Veggie-Day – student restaurant Mensa am Elsterbecken offers delicious and meatless meals on 1 November.

The 1st of November is World Vegan Day! On this occasion, student restaurant Mensa am Elsterbecken organises a Veggie-Day. They offer e.g. a Persian chickpea pan dish with halloumi, beetroot pancakes with a vegan béchamel sauce and enchiladas with bean filling and guacamole. An overview of all meals can be found on our menu website.

Moreover, every day there is a wide range of vegetarian and/or vegan dishes on offer in our student restaurants. Our biggest facility, student restaurant Mensa am Park at the Augustusplatz main campus, has received several awards from the animal welfare organisation PETA for its diverse vegan-friendly menu.

Veggie-Days take place since 2010 and were introduced through a student initiative. They are not only our contribution to sustainability but also an offer to students who’d like to eat vegetarian from time to time to abstain from meat consumption or have a vegetarian diet anyway. For those who do not want to eat meatless: A Veggie-Day takes place in only one student restaurant at a time, so it is possible to switch to another student restaurant on that day. Enjoy your meal!
