Celebrating World Vegan Day and Month

31st Oct 2022 | By Leicester Services Partnership

What better way to kick off World Vegan Day, than trying FREE vegan items in Campus Kitchen – Percy Gee Building on Tuesday 1st November 2022, at 12.00pm.

In collaboration with The Pantry – our 100% plant-based outlet, selling Indian street foods, the taster event is open to all University staff and students and items to try include: onion bhajis, falafel balls, sweet potato pakoras and The Pantry’s exclusive Bombay toasted sandwich.

Whether you are a meat eater, vegetarian, pescatarian, flexitarian or follow any other dietary lifestyle, you are all welcome to taste what The Pantry has to offer.

Fall in love with plant-based foods on campus! You can see the full menu, location and opening times for The Pantry here.
