Special Needs & Allergens
A9 Allergen Project
Identifies the top eight food allergens in the U.S. (eggs, dairy, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, wheat) plus gluten on all of our menu items.
Our dining centers have made it a priority to support the individual needs of everyone in our community. By labeling potential allergens in entrees, enforcing safer cooking and preparation processes in the kitchen, and by increasing student awareness, we are striving to make our dining centers as safe as possible for students living with food allergies and intolerances.
If you have a food allergy and/or intolerance it is your responsibility to read all allergen labels accompanying food choices in order to be fully aware of what you are eating.
If you have questions, please ask our food service management staff or avoid the food choice altogether.
For help navigating the dining choices available or for specific dietary concerns, contact our registered dietitian or call the dining administrative offices at 303-492-6325.
