AR2015 Lunch & Dinner Menus

Delicious lunch and dinner vegan buffets will be served out on the patio during the Conference. In inclement weather, they will be moved to the upper foyer. The meals are completely free of all animal products. 

The hotel restaurant (located on the main level) will also include vegan options on their menu for breakfast (such as tofu scramble), lunch, and dinner.

We'll also be serving free morning snacks in the Arbors room between 8am - 8:45am and at our evening networking receptions between 9:30pm - 11pm.
