Eating Healthy

Special Dietary Needs

We take pride in serving you wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis, and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. We're happy to meet with you to discuss your dietary needs. 

Simple Servings

The Simple Servings station at The Orleans Room provides safe and appetizing food choices for our customers with food allergies, gluten intolerance, and those who prefer simple food. All foods served at this station are prepared with ingredients that do not contain milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, or gluten. The station uses separate equipment/utensils, preparation areas, and storage areas to minimize the potential of allergens or gluten in our Simple Servings foods. 
The menu rotates daily for lunch and dinner and includes a variety of proteins, vegetables, and starches.  
The station is incorporated into the servery to allow students, even those without allergy concerns, to enjoy wholesome food selections. We ask that guests do not bring food from other stations and only use the plates provided by our servers at Simple Servings. 
Simple Servings team members are carefully trained to prepare and serve safe food. We provide training throughout the year for all employees and our Simple Servings managers, supervisors, and cooks also hold the AllerTrainU™ certificates. 
While the Simple Servings station is designed to allow customers an easy way to avoid allergens and gluten, we encourage our customers with special dietary needs to connect with our chef, registered dietitian, and general manager to ensure an enjoyable dining experience.
