Located at Philbrook Dining Hall. All foods here are prepared exclusively with ingredients that do not contain gluten (barley, wheat, rye) plus the 8 most common food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybean. Fresh prepared selections for Lunch and Dinner feature whole food items including a protein entrée, vegetable, grain, soup, vegetarian chili and two salads. Guests must use an empty, clean plate when approaching the station – no food is to be brought to the station in order to reduce the risk of allergen cross-contact.
We assist guests who have varying degrees of nutrition needs, from gluten-free diets, to multiple food allergies and intolerances. From menu tags on the service lines outlining potential allergens, to online menus, gluten-friendly zones and an online special meal service, UNH Dining is able to assist.
