Information for Students with Allergies
Serving Students with Food Allergies and Celiac Disease
The dining services team is well-trained in food allergy awareness and offer a number of options for students with food allergies and celiac disease. This includes communication about and modification to existing menu items, special preparation of menu items, and access to special products as agreed upon with students. Additionally, Dana does not use peanuts or tree nuts, but does include coconut as an ingredient in preparation of menu items. Dana also offers an allergen friendly, self-sufficient separate kitchen for those granted special access through Support Services. Students with disabilities on the basis of food allergies have the option to pre-order their lunch and dinner daily from the dining halls. Students wishing to use the pre-order options should reach out to any of the Bon Appétit employees below to set up a time to meet.
Daily menus for each café can be accessed at colby.cafebonappetit.com. Menu items that are appropriate options for most students with celiac disease are labeled as “made without gluten-containing ingredients” and can be filtered to streamline searching using the dietary preferences filter. Top-9 allergens are included in menu names and/or descriptions whenever possible. For more on eating with a food allergy in our café, visit this page. Further questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers/chefs on-site.
*Sesame is now the 9th major allergen. However, manufacturers have until 1/2023 to update package labels. Our platform will exclude added sesame in the form of seeds, tahini (sesame paste), and sesame oil, but sources of sesame may not be detectable on package labels. Please speak with a manager if you have a sesame allergy.
For questions about these services or to request food allergy accommodations, students should contact:
