Ivy League Universities Order Most Vegetarian and Vegan Meals

Students at Ivy League Universities are more likely to order vegetarian and vegan dinners than other universities, according to Grubhub — a food delivery service.

Topping the list is Yale University, Connecticut, with students attending this top ten ranked institution being 130 per cent more likely to order vegetarian or vegan food than students at other universities. Yale is followed by Harvard, a top five ranked university, and Wesleyan (part of the Little Ivies); both of these historic institutions, according to Grubhub, ordered meals without meat over 75 per cent more often than other students.

The Ivy League are universities in the states which are considered to be particularly prestigious and are ranked among the best in the world. The eight institutions included in the Ivy League are Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, and Yale University.

Kaitlyn Carl, a spokesperson for GrubHub, told Moneyish: “College can be a time of culinary exploration for many students. It’s the first time students are away from mom and dad and they get the chance to explore new ways to fuel the body and soul.”

“We’ve seen orders for vegan and vegetarian dishes grow in popularity (for orders outside of just college students) this year alone by 19 percent.”

The universities which order the most vegetarian and vegan meals are:

Missing from this list from the top five US ranked institutions is California Institute of Technology, Stanford University and Princeton. However, this may be a reflection of the buying habits at these universities and the take away delivery service of choice rather than their vegetarian/vegan populations.
