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.
Daily menus for each café can be accessed at eckerd.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 and view the guide on Food Allergies and Celiac Disease at Eckerd College. Further questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers/chefs on-site.
Dining Without the Top-9
We understand that our guests with special dietary needs, albeit food allergies, celiac disease, lactose intolerance, or any other medically necessary diet simply want a safe place to make food choices, quickly. To allow guests to have readily available options that meet their needs, we offer Bare — a destination in the café where all meals are prepared without the use of top-9 allergens plus gluten through the sole use of whole foods.
Café Bon Appétit offers a station dedicated to providing packaged products Made Without Gluten-Containing Ingredients. The Bare station provides packaged breads, baked goods, and snacks prepared with ingredients that are naturally without gluten-containing ingredients or alternatives to traditional gluten-containing options. This station is in a designated area of the café to minimize risk of cross-contact.
This café is located at the CEC Complex and offers a variety of foods ranging from breakfast to fresh baked cookies and brownies for dessert. You'll find a great salad bar and "make-your-own" deli sandwiches, exhibition station, and traditional "comfort foods" at the comforts station.
When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
Don’t let the simplicity of our options fool you. Each of our meal plan options provide block meals that guarantee a set number of complete, nutritious meals throughout the semester at our two all-you-care-to-eat cafés, plus Flex Dollars to enjoy Triton’s Pub or the special programs and services offered by Eckerd College Dining Services.
