Food Allergies and Dietary Needs
Dining Services understands the effort it takes to manage food allergies and dietary needs. We want to provide students with the support needed to meet their individual needs and dine safely on campus. To work together as a team, please connect with us.
FARE College Food Allergy Program
Dining Services is part of the College Food Allergy Program, a program of Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE). The program offers not only resources for prospective students and parents but also for colleges and universities. As part of the program, Dining Services has access to resources for training staff, implementing policies that guide our allergy-friendly practices, and additional resources for managing and preventing allergic reactions.
FARE is the leading national organization dedicated to food allergy research, education, advocacy, and awareness of food allergies. The goal of the College Food Allergy Program is to provide a comprehensive program to improve the safety and quality of life for college students with food allergies.
Dining Services can help accommodate for religious practices.
Information for all ingredients and products are collected from various food distributors as well as the United States Department of Agriculture Child Nutrition Database and are utilized in Dining Services' food management software system. Nutrition information is intended for personal information and comparison only and may differ from similar items sold on or off campus. We do not represent or authorize accuracy of the information, although it is correct to the best of our knowledge.
While Dining Services does not have allergen-free facilities, we take precaution to identify allergen information and make an effort to instruct food production staff on the severity of food allergies. However, there is always risk of contamination. In addition, manufacturers may change product specifications without notice and product availability may fluctuate. Guests need to be aware of this risk and proceed accordingly. Dining Services does not assume liability for reactions to foods consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at dining locations.
