Special Dietary Needs

Dining Services offers a number of resources for those with special dietary needs. Managers at each dining location are highly knowledgable about options available. Please feel free to consult with a manager at any time. They're happy to assist you. 

For food allergies, please speak with the manager on duty prior to eating and communicate which ingredients are problematic. We encourage you to visit the Food Allergy Buddy Web site where you can create your own FREE Food Allergy Buddy card to make communicating your food allergy to food service staff as simple as possible. For more information on food allergies, visit FoodAllergy.org.

For additional support with your special dietary needs or allergies, please contact our Executive Chef Richard Reynolds.

Food Labels

Nutritional KeyThe nine most common food allergens are identified in menu items served in both dining halls. If you have an allergy to soy, egg, milk, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, or shellfish you will want to avoid foods with that corresponding label. Foods prepared without gluten are labeled M w/out G for those with gluten intolerances or allergies. Also, vegetarian and vegan items are labeled as such.

We encourage students who require any specific diet to meet with our managers at Brockway and Harrison Dining Halls to talk about your dietary needs. You may also email them at:

Made without Gluten

Made without Gluten symbolDining Services takes precautions to ensure that cross contamination of ingredients does not occur in our kitchens. In spite of our diligent efforts, please understand menu items labeled as Made without Gluten (M w/out G) are produced in a kitchen that prepares foods containing wheat, milk, soy, tree nuts, and seeds.

Look for items labeled M w/out G.

Sante Station

Sante, which means "health" in French, is a station that can be found in Harrison Dining Hall. Foods at this station are made without gluten and there are many vegan-friendly options, with one item a day featuring an animal protein (chicken, beef, eggs.). This station, developed by Exectuive Chef Richard Reynolds, serves as a one-stop-shop for our customers who are looking for these kinds of options as well as anyone looking for healthy and delicious selections. Sante is in addition to the many nutritious options available throughout the dining hall.

Vegan & Vegetarian

Vegan symbolVegetarian symbolWe recognize the different dietary needs of vegan and vegetarian students on campus, and aim to provide nutritious choices to meet this lifestyle.

At both Brockway and Harrison dining halls, a vegetarian entree and vegan soup are offered daily at lunch and dinner. In addition, vegans can find tofu, hummus, soy milk, and a selection of vegetables and legumes at the salad bar daily in each dining hall. Vegetarian items are labeled with a (V) symbol to indicate that they have been prepared with no meat. Similarly, vegan items are labeled with a (VGN) symbol to indicate that they have been prepared using no animal products. According to Peta2.com The College at Brockport received a "B" on our Vegan Report Card with a 100% student satisfaction score in 2017. Peta2 assesses completed questionnaires and dining hall menus of thousands of colleges and universities across the country and then grades the schools based on their vegan efforts.
