Golden 1 Center Announces Meatless Mondays

Tonight, Golden 1 Center launched a Meatless Monday campaign in which one new meatless entrée option will be available at The Flavor Lab food cart located on the arena Plaza level during each Monday event this year. Tonight’s entrée will be El Pastor Tofu Tacos with Tomatillo Salsa, Cilantro, Onions and Pineapple.

Starting January 2019, Golden 1 Center’s culinary team – led by Executive Chef Brien Kuznicki – will produce new hand-crafted, delicious and meat-free culinary concepts for fans and guests to enjoy. Found at The Flavor Lab Cart – Section 109, these new creations will join the meatless options already offered in the arena at the Burger Patch Cart – Section 123.

“From the very beginning, Golden 1 Center’s food program was created with sustainability in mind,” said Sacramento Kings Chief Operating Office Matina Kolokotronis. “We are excited to continue building our diverse menu by incorporating new meatless options for guests to enjoy at Kings games, concerts and events throughout the year as research has shown dietary choices that incorporate plant-based alternatives have a significant positive impact on our environment.”

The meatless menu creations will continue to build on the arena’s industry-leading food and beverage program, which pledges to source 90 percent of ingredients available from within 150 miles of the arena. Golden 1 Center already offers various vegan, vegetarian and gluten-sensitive options throughout the arena’s Bridge and Plaza levels, as well as the premium club and lounge spaces. 

When Golden 1 Center opened in 2016, the culinary staff adopted a state-of-the-art sustainable and sourcing charter, designed a diverse list of Local Eats and food carts located throughout the arena and delivered on a strong commitment to promote health and wellness. In addition to responsibly-sourced ingredients and diverse menu options that focus on the “Slow Food Ethos” movement dedicated to providing good, clean and fair food for all, Golden 1 Center was California’s first smoke-free basketball arena and the first arena in the NBA to offer breastfeeding pods for nursing mothers.
