Utah State's Black Student Union will introduce more meal options than ever before at the organization’s annual Soul Food Dinner.

"The main thing we are focusing on this year is inclusion on campus,” said vice president Cedale Armstrong.

To allow a more diverse group of students to attend, members of the Black Student Union focused on accommodating various dietary restrictions and preferences.

Adding more variety to the dinner table this year was Armstrong’s idea.

Some of the food options will include vegan and gluten-free choices for more palate-sensitive guests.

There will also be traditional dishes such as fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and rice.

Utah State's Black Student Union President Ulekeya Trawally is encouraging all students to attend, especially because it will be the club’s 10th annual event.

"Flyers will be done by the end of January," Trawally said, "and we are expecting to see some new beautiful faces this year so stop by and let us feed your soul."

The festivities will begin on March 1 at 7 p.m. and end at about 10 p.m.
