Located at Galbreath Dining
The Simple Servings station provides safe and appetizing food choices for our customers with food allergies or food intolerances and those who prefer plain and simple foods.
The Simple Servings station does not offer foods made with the FDA most-common allergens of peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, milk products, eggs, or shellfish. All foods offered will be made without gluten-containing ingredients. Fish dishes will be included in the varied menu options as a healthy protein choice, along with beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and vegetarian options. The menu will change with every lunch and dinner.
Simple Servings staff members are carefully trained to avoid cross-contamination of their menu items. Separate equipment, storage areas, utensils and preparation areas minimize, but do not totally eliminate, the chances of gluten and allergens in our Simple Servings foods.
We take pride in serving our wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements. From our general manager to our front line servers, we work carefully to address food allergies, celiac diets, or their special dietary needs. We want to meet one-on-one with anyone who has individually dining needs to ensure that your dining experience s safe, delicious, and social. For students with medical conditions impact their ability to dine well on campus, we strongly encourage a conversation with our Registered Dietitian, Executive Chef, and/or our General Manager. In many instances, our dining team can easily assist with special needs. For more detailed information about dining on campus with food allergies, please visit our allergy-specific page.
Occasionally, Dining Services cannot meet a student's medical needs within normal service. We may require additional medical documentation to enable us to develop a more specific meal plan accommodation. In this situation, we ask that the student contact the Westminster College Disability Resources. Together, our departments work to serve our students with medical needs related to dining on campus. To contact Faith Craig, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 724-946-7192.
Our menu system provides ingredient statements specially highlighting the big eight allergens; milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy. Guests may check on the presence of allergens prior to planning their meals using the Bite app. The Absence of all allergen listed on this posted or electronic product signage is not a guarantee that the product is free of that allergen. The guest is responsible for communicating their allergy to a supervisor or manger to ensure safety.
While the Simple Servings program is designed to allow customers to have an easy way to avoid gluten and allergens, our chef still want to meet all of our customers with special food needs. Knowing about customer preferences and limitations allows us to plan our menu to best meet everyone’s needs. Contact Pat Bohinski, Galbreath Manager at email@example.com or call 724-946-6307 if you have food allergies.
Simple Servings: providing convenient, delicious, and secure options for you. Focus on your future, not your food allergy.
