There is also the option of filling out the Special Diet Request Form if needed. If you would like to send supplemental food items please contact RSR ahead of time so we can plan accordingly and store items in our dining hall.

Please note that while we do our best to address food allergies, we do not have a kitchen dedicated to producing allergen-free meals; we simply cannot claim to have a facility free of any identified allergen such as “gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, or egg-free” for example.
