Allergy Friendly at NC State – All Carolina’s Meal Review

| Sep.08, 2014, by

Ok, so I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news: my phone decided to temporarily stop working at the All Carolinas dinner and I was unable to get a picture of my allergy friendly plate (it was a good lookin’ one, too). The good news: the dinner was FANTASTIC. I think this has been one of the best, most allergy-friendly special dining events that I’ve reviewed so far. Sometimes, there are not a lot of allergy-friendly options at University Dining’s special events, especially for people with multiple food allergies. This event, however, showcased many different options at each location so I, even having several food allergies, was still able to fill up on a variety of delicious local foods. I went to Clark for dinner, but I’m sure the party over at Fountain was super fun! Read More »

How did you all enjoy last night’s Farm Feast?? I, for one, thought it was great! It was sad that we couldn’t celebrate outside, but even the cloudy weather wasn’t enough to dampen the festive spirit inside of Fountain. There were not many options that Read More »

Allergy Friendly at NC State: Mardi Gras Review

| Mar.06, 2014, by

So, how did Fat Tuesday treat you all? If you ate at Fountain or Clark, I’m betting pretty well! Since the Mardi Gras festivities were going on all day long, I decided to switch things up and try out the lunch options. As I said in my last post, many of the special, Cajun-style menu items contained one or more allergens, but I was still able to have a great allergy-friendly meal. Read More »

The nutrition team jumped to different dining locations each day of the week-long initiative to give away the free taste tests. With a couple samples each day, visitors at on-campus eateries could discover a few new, wholesome items to order in the future. Read More »
