We help you select delicious, healthy and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help you make choices that fit your needs.
TALK TO US ABOUT YOUR FOOD ALLERGIES!
We are passionate about serving students and take pride in sourcing wholesome ingredients, preparing delicious food, and providing accurate nutrition and allergen information. A team approach led by you, our educated consumer, is the best preparation for a safe school year free of allergic reactions. We want to meet one-on-one with all students with special dietary needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious and social.
Students with special dietary needs are able to receive individual assistance with our Registered Dietitian, Alexandra Duquette, RD, CD. Meetings with the Dietitian may include a review of the resources currently in place, a tour of the dining facilities, and menu planning.
Arrangements can be made if the student's medical dietary needs are unable to be met with daily offerings. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please start by contacting Student Accessibility Services and our Registered Dietitian Alexandra Duquette RD, CD, to discuss and set up reasonable dietary accommodations.

Food is personal, and we recognize that no two customers eat the same. Each have a wide variety of dietary, flavor and cultural food preferences. We do our best to meet these expectations. That is why UVM Dining offers specialized services in addition to a wide variety of foods that cater to our customers' dietary needs and preferences. For those customers with food allergies, intolerance, or medical needs we offer programs such as: My Zone, Simple Servings, and our Mindful program. It is UVM Dining's goal to provide a safe and enjoyable dining experience for everyone.
