Allergen Solutions

Do you have food allergies or intolerances? Our chef’s have you covered. Simple Selections is a station in our residential dining room where our dining team prepares special selections from ingredients without most common food allergens. Here you’ll find delicious dishes made without 7 of the top 8 most common food allergens – egg, milk, peanut, tree nuts, shellfish, soy and wheat.* To see our daily menu offerings at this station, full nutrition, ingredient, and allergen information, visit our Menus page.

*Aramark relies on our vendors’ allergy warnings and ingredient listings. Because we operate a commercial kitchen where ingredient substitutions, recipe revisions, and cross-contact with allergens is possible, Aramark cannot guarantee that any food item will be completely free of allergens.
