Healthy Eating

Providing you with healthy options is something your dining team proudly does every day. We help you select delicious, nutritious and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help you make choices that fit your needs.

Are you allergic to any foods? Have a gluten intolerance? All students with special dietary needs are required to register with Disability Services. To contact the Student Health Center Director, please call (484) 664-3199. Once you have done so, our culinary team can assist you with your special dietary requirements. Currently we offer a wide variety of products designed for those with allergies. Please send your comments, concerns, or questions to email.

If you need assistance regarding a medical concern with your meal plan, contact Disability Services.

Being well and eating well means becoming aware of choices and making the right decisions to achieve a better today and a better tomorrow. Your dining team is committed to offering you a wide range of options for a healthy dining experience. From recipes that include the most nutritious mix of ingredients to offering educational resources for positive lifestyle habits, healthy options are the result of a team dedicated to advancing the well-being of the entire campus community.

Another important part of our focus on health and wellness is the use of seasonal menus, featuring fresh and healthy ingredients - many of which are grown by local or regional farmers. Every season has its own unique produce that is showcased in delicious signature dishes to highlight the distinct flavors and natural appeal of seasonal items.

For students who have special dietary and nutritional needs we have informational resources and customized menus to address your needs. These menus meet our strict standards, without sacrificing flavor, texture or presentation. 
Nutrition icons make it easy to identify healthy choices

Look for these nutrition icons on the foods being served on your campus to help you meet your dietary needs or desires. If you need assistance finding the right types of foods for you, please reach out to your on-campus manager or chef.

If you have additional dietary questions, please contact us so we can help! We have registered dietitians ready to answer your questions and help you make healthy choices.
