Our dietitians work one-on-one with individuals who inform our staff of their dietary needs. We can make accommodations for any food allergy or intolerance brought to our attention.
Our food allergy training covers: food allergy 101, allergies versus intolerance and their reactions, what is anaphylaxis, emergency procedures, cross-contact versus cross contamination, safe food handling, and college and university policies.
In this RA training, we cover the topics of Food Allergy 101, symptoms of allergic reaction or anaphylaxis, what is Celiac Disease, Other medical or religious dietary needs, what is cross contact, Kansas State University Housing & Dining Policies and Procedures, how to connect students with a registered dietitian, looking for signs of student success, and empathy training.
If the student makes their allergy known to their RA, the necessary accommodations can be made.
Students may either contact the Housing and Dining Services department directly, or they could go through the Student Access Center.
