Multiple attempts to contact the First Energy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, to find out what vegan options are available at the stadium have not produced any results thus far.
We’ll keep reaching out, but in the meantime we do have some information that may make your gameday experience better.
We have the policies you need to know if you’re thinking about just bringing your own food to the stadium.
We also have two suggestions for vegan-friendly locations where you can stop and grab a bite to eat before or after the game.
Finally, if you’d like to help us out by encouraging First Energy Stadium to get in touch with us, you can reach them at [email protected].
