Food Services and Dietary Needs

Cathy Grisby is our main contact person with the dining
services during the week to deal with any communications pertaining to
food. Please talk to Cathy if you have food questions or if any problems
arise.

We have been in contact with, Carrie Quimby, the head of Dining Services
and she has been very responsive and helpful in clarifying what the school
is able to do regarding special dietary needs. They differentiate services
for gluten intolerant (Celiac) individuals and gluten sensitive (who can
tolerate trace amounts of gluten). Carrie says, “I would prefer to
accommodate the individual(s) with Celiac disease in our separate GF
area to keep it uncontaminated. We will put food in there for each meal.
There is a microwave and a toaster oven in that area. The other folks
(gluten sensitive) can enjoy items from the dining hall, and I have attached
our current wheat free/gluten free (GF for those who can tolerate a bit of
cross contamination, NOT for Celiac) items we have for regular service.
(This list is attached at the end of this article.) Our soy sauce is GF. If there
is a regular GF entree, it will be labeled GF. Gluten free bread will not be
provided by the school. We have plenty of choices for vegans and
vegetarians.”

I asked if there is a place for those who wish to bring their own special diet
items. Carrie’s response was, “This is a tough one since there will be 2
other groups using our dining facility that week, and I cannot promise that
items left in the kitchen area are safe from other eaters. I can have a small
table in your seating area for such things.” She will set up a small table
that we will so designate. Please label your own items CLEARLY with
your name, or store them in your room. There are refrigerators in each
dorm that we can use, but again, be aware that these are shared with
summer school interns and may not be totally secure.
