Foods with strong dietary specifications, such as vegetarianism or religious dietary products, can be difficult to come by and usually do not have many options. However, this deficit can be resolved with the following tips:

  • Stock up on stock. For many, buying the raw ingredients for the foods that they want to eat is unfeasible both practically and financially. However, soups are both easy to prepare and cheap to buy. Additionally, they keep fresh for a long time and can be bought in bulk.
  • Join a group. Nowadays, you can find almost any sort of club you want on a college campus. Try finding a group out there that fits your needs. These sorts of clubs often have get-togethers with opportunities for free food. This way, you have easy access to the foods you need and can bond with other students.
  • Bring snacks. Look into nearby stores and see if you can find options there. Simple things like dried fruit and granola bars are usually cheap and keep fresh for a long time. If you live close enough, you can also try to bring some food supplies from home.
  • Seek out advice resources. There are many nutrition and food services available for students, including dining services and student health. Ask about feasible options nearby as well as nutritional information. Additionally, take advantage of the most underused resource: current students. Talk to them and find out what they do to get around these dining problems. This goes for many other situations as well. The upperclassmen have gone through the same college struggles as you, and are usually more than happy to give advice.

Personnally I think that we should match religious special meals wit vegetarian meals. They are accepted by all religions and they are very healthy. It is not an issue to have one vegetarian meal by day even two or more. Don't let religion become a social issue. Do you agree?

In my previous high school we did a petition for having more options of lunches for people with dietary restrictions/specifications. With enough people we impacted the lunches drastically. They added vegetarian menus and reduced fat menus and many more. I think that if you really want to change the menus, you have to be the one to take the first step. It is not impossible. :)

I believe it good to have dietary options for the students because it shows respect for them and everyone has different beliefs so it's good to have these options out for them.
