A fully vegan dining hall at the University of North Texas estimates that up to 85 percent of the people who eat there are nonvegans.

The offerings at the UNT Mean Greens Dining Hall are made from such ingredients as tofu, vegetables, and greens grown onsite.

'Pride'

Chef Matthew Ward ensures that everything served in the cafeteria is not only 100 percent vegan, but also gluten free.

He told CBS: "We take pride in what we do here on a daily basis."
