Students chow down at 2 Dickinson co-op in this undated photo by W.L. (“Bill”) Allen ’79. A vegetarian and vegan-friendly dining option, Dickinson was founded in 1977 after a group of independent students pushed for an alternative to University dining halls and eating clubs. William Braham ’79, a founding member, told The Daily Princetonian in 1996 that one of his Dickinson favorites was “garbage soup, which was made on a Sunday night from all the leftovers of the week.” Tastes have changed over the years: Recent meals at the co-op have included mushroom risotto, vegetable sushi, avocado salad, curries, and dal.
