Feel Good Food Day – TODAY

On Wednesday 27 May 2015 the Fourth Floor Restaurant andStaff Dining Room will each be hosting their monthly Feel Good Food Day.


The aim of the event is to promote and create awareness of sustainable eating throughout LSE. As a result the restaurants will be serving fewer meat dishes, replacing them with tasty and more sustainable vegetarian options. We’d like to demonstrate that limiting meat in your diet can benefit your health, the environment and animal welfare – and still be very tasty, too!
