When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.

Food Allergies

We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.

Food allergies & sensitivities


Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.

Food Allergies and Celiac Disease

Serving Students with Food Allergies and Celiac Disease 

The dining services team is well-trained in food allergy awareness and offers several options for students with food allergies and celiac disease. This includes communication about and modification to existing menu items, special preparation of menu items, and access to special products as agreed upon with students.

We understand that our guests with special dietary needs, albeit food allergies, celiac disease, lactose intolerance, or any other medically necessary diet simply want a safe place to make food choices, quickly. Each student must determine their own level of comfort when making selections within our cafés.

Ingredients and allergen information for menu items can be found on our online menus, and allergen information can be found on our station signage within our cafés.

We also offer an allergy-friendly station called “SimplyOASIS”. The SimplyOASIS stations, available at 1920 Commons and Hill House, feature meals that celebrate fresh and simple single ingredients while avoiding all of the Major 9 Allergens + gluten.

We have developed very specific and flavorful recipes built upon singular ingredients that are typically safe for food-allergic people. The SimplyOASIS station is a convenient choice — but not the only choice — for those with allergies to any of the major 9 food allergens and those avoiding gluten. 

Daily menus for each café can be accessed here on our website. Menus can be filtered to streamline searching using the dietary preferences filter.

Further questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers/chefs onsite.

Disclaimer: Food ingredient and allergen information is provided for informational purposes in response to guest requests. Products may change without our knowledge and menu items are prepared in close proximity to other ingredients that may introduce cross-contact with ingredients not listed. We cannot assure against these contingencies. Guests with food allergies or specific dietary concerns should speak with a manager for individualized assistance.
