Dining Services aims to provide safe and nutritious meals to everyone who dines with
us. We recommend students and guests with food allergies inform the Host or Hostess
at either The Rock or The Quad Café and ask to speak with a manager about your dietary
needs. The Manager will assist you with menu suggestions and answer questions specific
to your allergy. Students with a meal plan should also make an appointment to meet
with the Dietitian and learn how we can provide you with more allergen-friendly selections
at each facility. You may be required to provide an Accommodations Form about your dietary needs. If a doctor prescribes medicine like an EpiPen, carry it
with you at all times to use in the event of an allergic reaction.
Students and guests can view the menus, recipe ingredients and potential allergens
online or by using the iPad’s at the entrance to The Rock Café and Quad Café. The
Allergen Filter, which is located in the upper right corner of the menu page, allows
you to identify which foods may contain your allergens.
The Rock Café and Quad Café have the ability to accommodate our students and customers
with gluten intolerance.
- For details on which foods are naturally gluten free, refer to the list of options
at each station. In the areas where customers serve themselves there is a risk of
cross-contact with some foods that contain gluten.
- View ingredients and nutritional facts or use the allergen filter in online menus.
- We have gluten-free buns, pizza, pasta, tortillas and cereal available by request.
- If you are extremely sensitive to gluten, contact the Manager or Cook for assistance.
- We will cook and serve your food using separate utensils to ensure that your meal
is safely prepared based on your needs.
- Ask our Registered Dietary Nutritionist about food options by emailing [email protected] or schedule a free appointment.
- Be Aware – Manufacturers may change their product formulation without our knowledge
and product availability may fluctuate. Customers on special diets or with food allergies
should see the manager or contact the Registered Dietary Nutritionist at 231-591-3747
