||The University Food Service provides a varied lacto-vegetarian menu planned to satisfy a wide variety of tastes, with one of the few university kitchens in the country that prepares most dishes from fresh, organic ingredients. Some of the fresh organic produce is grown on campus and nearby in Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture gardens and greenhouses.
