Information for Students with Food Allergies

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 needed by students with food allergies, celiac disease or other conditions affected by diet are available. My Zone is equipped with dedicated appliances, toasters, and microwaves to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. My Zone will always be free of gluten-containing ingredients and products, as well as tree nut and peanut products. 

The campus dining services management team is well-trained in food allergy awareness. Our trained chef is able upon request to prepare meals for individuals with specific allergies and other dietary sensitivities.   

Information about specific menu options and their allergen content can be found on for Taylor Dining Hall.  Items on the serving line will have a nutrition card in front of them.  Nutrition cards can be used to identify food items containing any of the major eight food allergens.  Questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers.
