Details About this Student's Food Restrictions

How many years ago were you diagnosed with food allergies or celiac disease?


If you indicated celiac or gluten intolerance, how sensitive are you to gluten?

Extremely: React to even small traces

Add details to help us better understand your food restrictions (e.g. sensitivity level, potential reaction, need for EPI pen)

I have had horrible experiences with safe school food in the past, and my college has absolutely allowed me to view school food safety differently. I am extremely grateful for Bellarmine, and I know they want what is best for me! I react to small things, including just touching gluten. I react with any interaction with gluten no matter what, and I’ve been like that for 10 years

Yes! Seperate kitchen areas are a great accommodation that my school has included!

Nothing, I think they’re doing a great job!
