Simple Servings is our resident dining option, providing safe and appetizing food choices for our customers with food allergies or gluten intolerance. The Simple Servings station will not offer foods made with the FDA most-common allergens of peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, wheat, soy, milk products, and eggs. All foods offered will be made without gluten-containing ingredients.
Fish dishes will be included in the varied menu options as a healthy protein choice, along with beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and vegetarian options. The menu will change with every lunch and dinner. Although we take precautions, the possibility of cross-contact with other foods does exist.
Our kitchen prepares many other foods with gluten and all of the listed allergens. Simple Servings staff members are carefully trained to avoid cross-contamination of their menu items. Separate equipment, storage areas, utensils and preparation areas minimize, but do not totally eliminate, the chances of gluten and allergens in our Simple Servings foods.
While the Simple Servings program is designed to allow customers to have an easy way to avoid gluten and allergens, we still want to meet all of our customers with special food needs.
Knowing about customer preferences and limitations allows us to plan our menu to best meet everyone’s needs.
If you have questions about Simple Servings or your special dietary needs, please email our Regional Dietitian, Kelsey at email@example.com.
