Fourth year internal medicine and pediatrics resident Dr. Mike Kelly shaves his head after reaching his fundraising goal for the Boston Marathon.
“We started to introduce more options before COVID-19 hit, but we needed to take out the salad bar during the pandemic, which eliminated the majority of our vegetarian or vegan offerings,” says Jody Melone, assistant director of Nutrition and Food Services. “We are excited to once again help promote healthy eating with some new plant-based options. Patrons should look for the new menu labeling. A green ‘V’ will indicate offerings free of dairy, meat, fish, eggs and honey.”
The cafeteria, located on Mass General’s main campus, now offers:
- A rotating vegan soup on the menu daily, made from scratch in-house
- “Grab and Go” side dishes, including beans/lentils and vegetables
- A bowl station with a grain, vegan and nonvegan protein, vegetables and sauces
Melone says the cafeteria’s chefs also are in the process of testing future dishes and desserts.
To celebrate the hospital’s new Center for the Environment and Health’s launch on April 1, Eat Street Café will feature a special plant-centered menu.
