Assumption College dining services provides options for students with food allergies in Taylor Dining Hall as well as in My Zone, an allergen-friendly area also located in Taylor Dining Hall.  My Zone is a pantry where food items free of gluten-containing ingredients as well as tree nut and peanut products are available to approved individuals with food allergies, celiac disease or other conditions affected by diet. My Zone is accessible by card swipe access and is equipped with dedicated appliances, toasters, and microwaves to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. 

Starting in fall 2016, there will be a dining option called Simple Servings available in the main dining area.  Food offered at the Simple Servings station are free of the FDA's eight major allergens.

Our trained chef is able upon request to prepare meals for individuals with specific allergies and other dietary sensitivities.  Questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers. 

Disclaimer:  Separate equipment, storage areas, utensils and preparation areas minimize, but do not totally eliminate the chances of gluten and allergens in the Simple Servings foods.
