Aramark, a food and beverage service provider of eight Major League Baseball teams, just unveiled their menu for the 2018 season … and we’re excited! Aramark is clearly listening to what people are craving and after reviewing consumer insights and local food trends, the company is offering MORE vegan options to please sports fans as part of their Healthy for Life 20 By 20 initiative!

Ballpark food has come a long way. In addition to doing the classics well, we’re focusing on driving quality, increasing healthy options, making it convenient and providing personalization for our guests,” said Carl Mittleman, President of Aramark’s Sports and Entertainment division.

So, what’s on the menu? At PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennslyvania, you can enjoy an “un-tuna” salad made out of chickpea salad (celery, pickle relish, onions, and sweet mayo dressing), served on wheat bread with spinach. 

If you’re at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, you can dine on Vegan’Acho Nachos, red and white tortilla chips topped with vegan cheese, black beans, guacamole, and pico de gallo. 

 

If those two options don’t hit the spot, baseball fans can also dig into Greens and Grains at PNC Park, a filling salad including kale, spinach, roasted corn, carrots, quinoa, brown rice, cranberries, and sunflower seeds, tossed in a Sriracha-carrot dressing. Fans at Citi Field in Queens, New York can take a bite of the popular Impossible Burger, a plant-based burger made to order. Lastly, fans at Citizens Bank Park in Philidelphia, Pennsylvania can opt for a Vegan Cauliflower Cheesesteak, which includes roasted cauliflower, poblano peppers, onions, and vegan cheese sauce on a vegan roll. Yum!

With demand for plant-based food up by 140 percent, we’d say Aramark is hitting it out of the park by adding more vegan options!
