Food Allergy

Talk to Us about Your Food Allergies and Diet Needs! 

We take pride in sourcing wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator (link the nutritional calculator). We are all passionate about serving students.  From general manager to front line servers, we work diligently to address students’ specific needs, especially those with food allergies, Celiac disease, or special needs.  

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 of our customers who have individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social.  If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form (please insert the feed back form link.) 

Menu allergens 

Our menu system provides ingredient statements specifically highlighting the big eight allergens: milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, & soy. Guests may check on the presence of allergens prior to planning their meals using the online menu, Bite app, and nutrition calculator. The absence of an allergen listed on posted or electronic product signage is not a guarantee that the product is free of that allergen. The guest is responsible for communicating their allergy to a supervisor or manager to ensure safety.  

Simple Servings:

Simple ServingsSimple Servings is our resident dining option, providing safe and appetizing food choices “ready to go” for our customers with food allergies, gluten intolerance, or those who prefer plain and simple foods. The Simple Servings station does 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.  Simple Servings staff members are carefully trained to avoid cross-contact 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.  

Simple Servings is open to anyone and is located at Egtvedt Dining Hall, running five or days a week from 11am-7pm. Check out our menu for Simple Servings menu today at Warner Pacific Menu
