omelet bar, grill, deli, specialty bars (global, vegan, pop-up)
Top 8 allergens are listed on our on-line menu at saintmarys.sodexomyway.com
salad bar, pasta bar, pizza, desserts, and all other self-serve areas
Self-serve areas can have a risk of allergen cross-contact. Please ask for assistance in having us serve you a portion from back-up. For example, the self-serve salad bar has many milk-containing items, so milk-allergic students should request their salad be made for them in the kitchen.
For milk-allergic students, you may request an omelet made from whole eggs in a separate pan with vegetables from back-up. On the grill, you may order a hamburger made in a separate pan in the kitchen, rather than the flat-top grill. The "My Zone" area also provides gluten-free bread and sandwich fillings, so students do not have to use the regular deli.
Self-serve areas do have precautions in place, such as assuring that each item has a separate utensil, and wiping up spills. We also lay out our salad bar with plain vegetables at one end, and top allergen-containing foods at the other.
Since self-serve areas are prone to cross-contact from other customers, please ask us to assist you with a serving from our back-up in the kitchen.
Our special Simple Servings and My Zone stations accommodate nearly all students with food allergies. If students need to request a different item, they may work with the chef.
Saint Mary's "food-forward" Simple Servings station puts the cook preparing the food out front interacting with students. Students watch their food being prepared for them, and served to them by the cook. Simple Servings is open to all students, so allows food allergic students to have a very comfortable social experience in dining, without feeling singled out. Students are not allowed to serve themselves, or to bring other foods over to Simple Servings, preventing cross-contact. All ingredients at the station are free of 7 of the top 8 allergens and gluten.
Allertrain encompasses food allergies, celiac, food intolerances, anaphylaxis, policies, legislation, emergency management, and practical tips on communication, preventing cross-contact, cleaning, properly following recipes, and ensuring signage is accurate.
