Convergence Zone is home to the Sambazon Acai bowl, Dillanos fair trade coffee and UNFI plant-based snacks, butter, cream cheese and more. These brands were chosen because the companies believe in sustainability and better plant-based food, says Emily Henspeter, marketing manager for Chartwells, which operates Redhawk Dining. In all, about four dozen vegan options are on the café’s product list.

Well, plant-based food anyway. The Convergence Zone café in the Jim and Janet Sinegal Center for Science and Innovation is the only all-plant-based eatery on campus.
