The idea behind the takeover was to bring awareness to students in order to learn more about having a plant-based lifestyle.

A number of different dishes were on hand, ranging from tacos made with jackfruit and spaghetti squash, to Sodexo’s rendition of a beyond burger.

Going plant-based has shown improved health amongst those who do so. It cuts down heart disease and lowers cholesterol.

Beforehand, Georgia College already had a completely vegan station, where roughly 75 students and staff dine at daily. However, showing the variety of plant based foods generated a great response, not just from Georgia College students, but from younger children taking tours of the university as well.

Some of the stations at The Max maintained their traditional foods, meaning students still had the option of eating meat.
