A brief description of the vegan dining program:

Chartwells, Fanshawe's Food Services Provider, has two programs that support this criteria:
1) Balanced Choices is Chartwells' nutrition & wellness program that is designed to provide customers with healthy food options and nutrition education to assist them in making better food choices. The Balanced Choices program supports the healthy lifestyle philosophy of moderation and variety.
2) The “Be a Flexitarian” program promotes the idea of making an active choice to eat meatless meals from time to time as part of a healthy lifestyle. By eating even one meat-free meal a week, we can make a positive impact on both our health and the environment.

Eateries run by the School of Tourism and Hospitality have a variety of healthy eating choices, including a variety of vegetarian and vegan meal choices. All banquet menus have one alternative vegetarian item on the menu, and the dining room offers 2 vegetarian items each day.

The Fanshawe Student Union has a variety of meals, and are proud to have many options for vegetarians and vegans alike featured on their menus.
