Guide For Students with Dietary Restrictions


Gluten Disclaimer

The Gluten Sensitive (GS) label indicates the food item contains no major gluten ingredients such as wheat, barley, or rye. Incidental gluten may still be present in GS labeled foods.


Food Allergy Disclaimer

AVI Foodsystems at Wellesley College makes every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. We label items with possible allergen-containing ingredients and every effort is made to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies; however, there is always a risk of contamination. There is also a possibility that manufacturers of the commercial foods we use could change the formulation or substitute at any time, without notice. As well, any self-service area does not have control over cross contamination. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee the absence of cross contamination with our baked goods. Customers concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk. Students with food allergies are encouraged to contact our Registered Dietitian or Health Services for additional information and/or support.
