Dining with Specific Dietary Needs

Click to read WashU Dining’s defintion of each dietary need.

Vegetarian

Vegetarian at WashU Dining Services means ovo-lacto vegetarian (includes eggs & dairy). Vegetarian items are prepared separately from non-vegetarian ones, using dedicated equipment cleaned after use with non-vegetarian items.

Vegan

WashU Dining Services defines vegan items as those with no animal by-products. Vegan items are prepared separately from non-vegetarian products, and cooking equipment and utensils are cleaned and sanitized after use with non-vegetarian items.

Kosher

Products are labeled as Kosher if they are prepared in the on-site Kosher Kitchen or come from a certified Kosher vendor. Kosher items are produced in the Kosher Kitchen under Mashgiach supervision by a dedicated Kosher production team.

Halal

WashU Dining labels menu items containing meat as Halal if they are made with a certified Halal meat and have been produced with the appropriate cross contact measures to remain Halal. Menu items not contacting meat will be labeled as Halal only if there has been an intentional ingredient substitution for alcohol-derived ingredients within the recipe.

Nut Allergies

We do not use peanuts and treenuts in the production of food in our dining facilities, with the exception of our bakeries and some cafes. Grab & go items containing nuts are individually packaged with our “contains nuts” icon.

For more information about dining on campus with a nut allergy, please email nutrition@wustl.edu.

Allergy Friendly

Products in our convenience markets may be designated allergy friendly if they exclude at least one of the top 9 food allergens, as well as gluten.

Celiac Disease

Our Simple Serving concepts do not use ingredients or foods containing gluten, including wheat, barley and rye; yet, our dining locations and kitchens are not certified gluten-free facilities.

Simple Servings & Simply Made

All foods served at this station are prepared exclusively with ingredients which do not contain the following food allergens:

Milk | Eggs | Wheat | Soy | Shellfish | Fin Fish | Sesame | Peanuts |Treenuts | Gluten

Meals at Simple Servings are prepared in a facility which uses these ingredients in the production of other dishes. Although we take measures to ensure against this, the possibility of cross-contact with other foods does exist.
