Simple ServingsCollege is complicated enough; enjoying a meal at the resident dining hall shouldn't be. But choosing meals can present undue anxieties for the growing number of students who are arriving on college campuses with food allergies that can be dangerous-even fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, teenagers and young adults with food allergies are at the highest risk of fatal food-induced anaphylaxis.

Simple Servings is our solution to proactively address most of the ingredients that account for 90 percent of all food-allergy reactions: milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. Simple Servings also recognizes the current skyrocketing demand for gluten-free foods, which certain students may require out of medical necessity (celiac disease) or simply by choice. Simple Servings also appeals to students who prefer plain and simple foods and those with other health-related dietary concerns, such as Type I diabetes. With Simple Servings, students can comply with food allergy or other dietary concerns without feeling singled out. They won't have to go off campus for their meals or miss out on dining with their friends while waiting for the chef to specially prepare their meals. All foods offered at the Simple Serving station are naturally free of milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts and gluten. Straightforward preparation techniques assure transparency of ingredients, and help students prepare to be responsible for their own shopping and cooking in future. The lunch and dinner menu change daily and include varied protein options: fish, beef, pork, chicken, and turkey. All side dishes are vegan, containing no milk, eggs, or meat products.
