Dining Services recognizes that mealtimes can provide a social opportunity to enjoy good food, conversation, and relaxation from a busy day.

Thus, Dining Services operates numerous facilities that offer a variety of foods that include "home-cooked" meals, snacks, and "meals on the run" that promote a healthy lifestyle. However, these healthy options may include foods that some individuals find disagreeable. Dining Services seeks to provide food alternatives when these preferences are the result of a food allergy.
