Find Meals That Meet Your Needs

Our team strives to develop meals that accommodate all our students. We offer a variety of vegan, vegetarian, and halal menu options. Look for these icons on our menu to help identify foods that fit your dietary needs:

Vegan icon

Our blue Vegan icon helps identify recipes that contain no meat, fish, poultry, as well as animal products.

Vegetarian icon

Our red Vegetarian icon helps identify recipes that contain no meat, fish, or poultry. These recipes may contain cheese, egg, or other animal products.

Halal icon

Our grey Halal icon helps identify recipes with Zabiha meat that follow the guidelines of Islamic Law. These recipes also contain no gelatin or alcohol.

Nourish your Body

Nourish is a campus-wide signage and nutritional guideline initiative that makes it easier for the UC Davis community to identify and choose nourishing foods on campus. Nourish your mind and body by choosing foods with the Nourish icon! These dishes have more fruits, vegetables, fiber, whole grains, and unsaturated fats.

For more on how the Nourish campaign was developed and nutritional guidelines, please visit the Nourish website.

Just Ask!

Want to get that burrito without meat? Have questions about the pasta's ingredients or preparation? Our Just Ask! policy is meant to make you feel right at home in our DC's! Feel free to just ask a question to any DC staff member, or request a menu item modification to any chef, and they would gladly help to address your needs.

Try a Taste

Our Try a Taste feature allows you to ask a chef at any platform for a sample of a dish before fully committing to a whole plate. Not only can this help you decide, but it's also a sustainable way to cut down on food waste!


At UC Davis Dining Services, we value our student's feedback. Text-and-Tell is our easy to use program for collecting feedback from our patrons! Did you receive stellar service from a staff member? Have some critique to offer on that burrito? Simply text the location code (txtsegundo, txttercero, txtcuarto, or txtlatitude) along with your feedback to 55744. Your opinions matter to us, and help us improve your dining experience!
