Residential Dining’s Commitment To Meeting Special Dietary Needs

Penn State’s Campus Residential Dining aims to provide a variety of options for its students throughout all five dining commons on campus. Each dining commons offers both meatless and vegan options every day, along with a variety of wholesome, healthy and safe foods to meet a wide array of dietary needs and preferences

Residential Dining is committed to ensuring that every student’s expectations are met, regardless of any special dietary need. Penn State works to provide a vegan soup, a vegan entrée and a variety of meatless and vegan side dishes at both lunch and dinner in all dining commons. Vegetarian Living coolers in the all-you-care-to-eat dining commons provide supplementary dairy-free items including plant-based alternatives such as rice, soy and almond milk, soy yogurt and vegan cheese. Meatless items do not contain meat or any meat by-products, but may contain animal products such as eggs, milk or cheese. Vegan options do not contain any meat or meat by-products, honey, eggs, dairy products, or insects, but may contain cane sugar.

Penn State also provides allergen information on the entree cards, which are displayed at point of service. Each entree card will identify if major allergens (dairy, egg, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat/gluten and sesame) are present in the dish utilizing the icons below:

Serving size, calories and other special dietary information can also be found on entree cards. Guests are encouraged to utilize the online menu to find valuable allergen, ingredient and nutrition information. For more information on how to utilize the online menu, please visit our website.

Students and guests are encouraged to notify an employee of any allergy or special dietary need and can request a portion of food from a backup pan to avoid cross-contact, especially in self-service areas. To learn more about how Residential Dining can help guests with food allergies or special dietary needs, please contact a registered dietitian.

Campus Dining is committed to enriching students’ residential experience. With five dining halls on campus, and over 35 options of places to eat, Campus Dining works towards serving quality food and beverages at all times, with quick, friendly and responsive service.
