Carolina Dining Services recognizes various food allergies and intolerances, and strives to provide you with all the ingredients we use in the food items we prepare. At every station in both residential dining halls, we have digital screens that provide the breakdown of the nutritional content of each dish. We identify and display the top eight allergens: egg, milk, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat. This is to help you feel confident in knowing what foods you can safely eat with your specific food allergy or intolerance.
Celiacs Disease and gluten intolerances: Every day, we have a gluten free cereal option, gluten free bread and pasta available, all gluten free salad dressings, all gluten free deli meats and a gluten free dessert option of the day. We occasionally offer gluten free waffle/pancake batter and we also use gluten free vegetable, chicken and beef bases in preparation of our soups, sauces, casseroles, etc.
Milk intolerances and allergies: Every day, we have chocolate and vanilla soy milk, lactose free ice cream and we cook with a dairy free margarine.
Soy intolerances and allergies: In an effort to decrease the amount of items that contain soy, we cook with a soy free canola/olive oil blend.
Peanut and Tree Nuts allergies: We operate a nut-free salad bar to eliminate the possibility of cross-contaimination. We inform our customers to take caution with our bakery items and any menu items that contain pesto, coconut or coconut milk.
*Disclaimer: Carolina Dining Services makes every effort to ensure that all allergens by recipe are listed accurately. However, please be advised that products prepared in our kitchen may have come into contact with common food allergens. Please direct any questions regarding an allergy or food ingredients to any of the following individuals: Registered Dietitian, Executive Chef, or ask the manager on duty.

Students with food allergies or nutritionally significant medical conditions (diabetes, Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, anemia, hypertension, hypoglycemia, etc.) can receive nutrition advisement through a private consultation with the Carolina Dining Services' Registered Dietitian. The private consultation will include a tour of the dining locations to identify which foods are safe and a meeting with the chefs or any necessary managers so that you know who to contact with questions.
Our Registered Dietitian, Kelley Urban, is available to all UNC-Chapel Hill students with concerns about dining on campus; call 919.962.2352 or email email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
