Leave it to the San Francisco 49ers to bring tofu eaters and football fans together in one room.

Levi's Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers, will offer 14 vegan options and 26 vegetarian items at every game. There will be at least one vegan option at every concession stand, according to Centerplate, the stadium's food vendor.

Thus, One Green Planet, an online green food guide, has now dubbed Levi's Stadium The Most Vegan-Friendly Stadium in the Country.

Centerplate President Des Hague said the company has worked for years "to usher in a new era of fan experience," specifically one that delivers food that's as healthy and diverse as the Bay Area population.

They're not just referring to baby carrots and greens. The new vegan menu will offer items including baozi, curries, tortas, navy bean curry, Portobello boa bun, and BBQ Jackfruit sandwich, to name a few.

Those of you looking for traditional game-day fixes can still burgers, albeit, the more natural version of the patties. Included on the menu will be grass-fed burgers, which the company anticipates will be one of the most popular items.

Also, 80 percent of the food will be made from locally sourced ingredients and products from within California and a 60 percent in-house preparation rate. In addition, all the seafood will come from sustainable fisheries, all the cooking oil will be recycled, and all the forks, knives, spoons, etc. will be recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable.

"From the fresh, locally grown ingredients on menus to the investment in equipment and service at every level of the stadium, we are very excited to welcome guests to an unparalleled and highly differentiated stadium experience," San Francisco 49ers President Paraag Marathe said in a statement released this week.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
