Grade your college on feeding students with your food restrictions
Explain your rationale for that grade
If you go to the “allergy” section they have food for either gluten free or vegan but not both. If you have multiple allergies you have to call ahead and they will prepare a meal for you. I’ve done this multiple times before but I have to wait 30 minutes after arriving to the dining hall after giving them 20-45 minutes in advance notice that I was coming.
What stage are you in college?
How many years ago were you diagnosed with food allergies or celiac disease?
Please use this space to provide details that would help us better understand your food restrictions. Include your reaction if exposed to the foods you are avoiding. Please mention if you carry an epi-pen.
I carry an epi-pen. I am also allergic to apples, cantaloupe, mushrooms, and I follow a modified low fodmap diet which I am very strict about.
If you indicated that you have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant, how sensitive are you to gluten?
Very: React to small amounts
Does your college handle food restrictions as you expected they would when you selected your school?
Not at all what I expected
Check all boxes that apply to your college experience
I do not have sufficient options at any dining halls, I asked alot of questions before I came but the reality was different
Have you had a reaction from eating in your dining hall?
Please describe your meal plan for each year there so far. Include if your school required any of these decisions. If you are eating in a greek house or other club type arrangement include that as well.
I get 225 meals per semester
