The Simple Servings station at Harless provides safe and appetizing food choices for our customers with food allergies, gluten intolerance, and those who prefer simple food. All foods served at this station are prepared with ingredients that do not contain milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame or gluten. The station uses separate equipment/utensils, preparation areas, and storage areas to minimize the potential of allergens or gluten in our Simple Servings foods.The menu rotates daily and includes a variety of protein (i.e., chicken, beef, lentils), vegetables (i.e., broccoli, carrots, green beans), and starches (i.e., rice, potato, quinoa). The station is incorporated into theserveryto allow students, even those without allergy concerns, to enjoy the wholesome food selections. We ask that guests do not bring food from other stations and only use the plates provided by our servers at Simple Servings.
Simple Servings team members are carefully trained to prepare and serve safe food. We provide training throughout the year for all employees and our Simple Servings managers, supervisors, and cooks also hold theAllerTrainU™certificates.
We Avoid the Following Allergens & Gluten:
Simple Servings proactively addresses most of the ingredients that account for 90% of all food-allergen reactions. The 9th FDA specified allergen, fin fish, is still offered at our station. However, it is only ever included in 'obvious' fish dishes - whole pieces of fish. No fish sauce is ever allowed at Simple Servings.
Ingredients used during meal prep are stored separately from any allergens. Please be assured that all of our staff at Simple Servings are Allertrain Certified and happy to answer any questions related to your meal.
There is a SimpleZone fridge adjacent to the station filled with pre-packaged (i.e. bread, cookies, etc.) items made without gluten, peanuts or tree nuts and a dedicated toaster.This area is self-serve, but is monitored by the Simple Servings staff.
We strive to accommodate the full-spectrum of dietary needs and restrictions by providing daily rotating vegetarian, vegan and gluten & allergen safe options (SimpleServings & SimpleZone). If you have a dietary accommodation you feel cannot be met in the dining hall, please contact The Office of Disability Services.
While the Simple Servings station is designed to allow customers an easy way to avoid allergens and gluten, we encourage our customers with special dietary needs to connect with our Chef, Registered Dietician and General Manager to ensure an enjoyable dining experience. Please contact us at:
