Welcome to Hayden!  
Hayden represents NYU Dining's sustainable and healthy eating initiatives.  We show support for local growers by serving a selection of seasonal, locally grown fruits and vegetables.  We serve only cage free eggs at our grill and our fish is harvested using sustainable farming methods to ensure robust fish populations for the future.

Our Sustainability Practices!
In effort to reduce our carbon footprint we have implemented a variety of sustainable practices.

-Trayless Dining helping to conserve water and energy and reduce the amount of detergents and chemicals that are expelled into the environment.

-Ionized Water Cleaning is used in daily maintenance cleaning on table tops and counters.

-Reusable Meals 2 Go containers reduce waste generated by disposable take out containers.  We are in the process of piloting the program to gauge its effectiveness on our campus.

-Farmers Market Cart showcases locally grown fruits and vegetables that are currently in season.

Hayden has fresh fruit spa water available daily

Hayden is the home base for vegan cuisine.  We have dedicated an entire station to vegan dining at the salad bar.  Our daily menu always includes vegan entrees, side dishes and desserts.

Gluten Free Offerings 
In an effort to support gluten-free dining we have implemented Gluten-Free areas in all residential dining locations. These areas are available during all service times and at minimum will include Gluten Free soup, bread, a cereal and dessert as well as a dedicated toaster. This is a not a Gluten-Free serving area, gluten-free menu options will be located throughout the dining hall. For information on gluten-free dining contact the location chef or manager.
