Food Allergies

We take pride in sourcing wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. We are all passionate about serving students. From general manager to front line servers, we work diligently to address students’ specific needs, especially those with food allergies, Celiac disease, or special diet needs.

A team approach led by you, our educated consumer, is the best preparation for a safe school year free of allergic reactions. We want to meet one-on-one with all of our customers who have individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form.

New: My Zone

My Zone, located in Peregrine Dining Hall, is a swipe access room where food items for students with Celiac Disease or food allergies are stored and prepared with precautions against cross-contact. This area is free of peanuts, tree nuts, and gluten-containing ingredients. This gives students the ability to be involved in their own allergen-safe meal prep.

Simple Servings

Simple Servings by Sodexo is your "one-stop-shop" for allergen-free items on campus that are fresh, flavorful, and delicious. Milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts account for 90% of all food allergies and Simple Servings is here to make sure that any student with 1 or more of these food allergies can enjoy a safe and flavorful meal. Lunch and dinner protein entrees change daily with a fresh selection of local produce.

Vegan Dining

At Peregrine Dining Hall, we offer the "Wild Mushroom" station in order to fit the needs of all of our vegan students. Every day we offer unique meals for lunch and dinner incorporating fresh and local ingredients. Stop by to enjoy hummus with grilled pita, or cold fresh bean and vegetable salads offered throughout the week. Looking for a delicious, hot meal? Try our specialty entrees such as quinoa stuffed zucchini, chickpea stew, or acorn and butternut squash chili all served with various rice dishes and vegetables. Look for the green vegan icon to see if any of our other stations have vegan offers throughout the week! 

Sodexo strives to increase the vegan options for our students campus wide. Currently vegan meals are available at Peregrine Dining Hall, Tokyo Sushi (vegan rolls), Salad Toss and The Roost at Ridgeview. If there are ever any questions regarding vegan dining options please feel free to ask a manager. Remember: keep an eye out for "VE" for vegan!
