Opening a plant-based café at King’s

In September 2018, King’s Food, King’s College London’s internal catering provider, opened a fully plant-based café in the newly refurbished Bush House. Since joining the Sustainable Restaurant Association in 2016, King’s Food have gradually introduced sustainability initiatives into their business.

KCL have encouraged staff to think about sustainable practices and to propose radical ideas to reduce their carbon footprint and the opening of this plant-based café is an example of how ideas from staff members have been taken forward. This initiative has made plant-based food and drinks readily available, enabling staff and students to make positive changes and has raised awareness of plant-based diets at King’s.
