Food Allergy Information

We Take Allergies Seriously

We welcome all eaters to our table and have many resources available to guests who have food allergies.

Menu Transparency

Our culinary and health and wellbeing teams work collaboratively to create menus that meet our guests' dietary preferences and needs. Our menus are nutritionally analyzed and flagged for the top 9 food allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, milk, eggs, wheat, and sesame. Our menus are available both on our digital menu boards and on our website. Below, you will find information for each of the top 9 allergens.

Top 9 allergens

Note: Our main residential dining facility, the PIT, does not serve any peanuts or tree nuts, except coconut.

Peanuts and peanut products are used as ingredients in dishes at other dining locations. Students with a peanut allergy are advised to take caution with bakery items and Asian dishes where peanuts may be included in sauces. Peanut oil is not used as an ingredient in any of our chef crafted recipes.


Check out allgood

allgood is our allergen-friendly station located in the central residential dining facility, the PIT. Daily, this station serves nutritionally balanced, fresh, delicious, and chef-driven food that does not contain the top 9 food allergens. The station features guest favorites as well as unique made-to-order options. allgood is rooted in our Harvest Table Culinary Commitments. Associates who work at the station undergo allergen safety training. There are also stringent policies and procedures in place to keep you safe. The food that is prepared for allgood is made in a separate area in the kitchen with all different utensils and cooking equipment. Additionally, the dishes are prepared using only canola oil. Our menus are transparent and can be found on the website and on digital signage within the location so all guests can feel confident about what they’re eating.

Stress Less Pantry

The Stress Less Pantry, located at The Table at Reynolda (aka the PIT), is a designated area for students with food allergies to access and prepare separate food. It is meant to be supplementary to menu items that are served in the location. The pantry has certified gluten-free products, alternative dairy products, snacks, and other condiments. It also has pantry space and a separate toaster, fridge, and microwave.

Students must have a valid meal plan with Deacon Dining and must apply to gain access to the pantry through the link below. If accepted, students will then be sent an information sheet along with a test that must be taken in order to be granted access—interested in applying? Please see the application below!
