Tree Nut-Free & Peanut-Free Dining

Tree nut and peanut allergies can be stressful, but not necessarily when you dine with us. We focus on the details of providing safe and delicious tree nut– and peanut-free foods so you can focus on the really tough question: With all these choices, what do I want to eat?

We understand the concern of tree nut and peanut cross-contact, such as students adding peanut butter or Nutella to food and then using a panini press, toaster, or waffle iron. To protect your food from exposure to tree nut- and peanut-containing foods, we offer special options accessible in our tree nut- and peanut-free pantry in Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center and in our dedicated storage space in Carmichael Dining Center.

Stop by Carmicheal or Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center, and you’ll find:

  • A dedicated tree nut- and peanut-free toaster and panini press  
  • Individual packs of cream cheese and jelly, as cross-contact is common with these foods
  • Packaged chocolate chip cookies and brownies prepared in a certified tree nut- and peanut-free facility
  • Tree nut- and peanut-free cereals

Both of our dining centers provide Food Fact Cards near each food item. Our Food Fact Cards provide ingredients and nutrition information, and identify whether a food item contains one or more of the top eight food allergens.

So...who’s hungry?
