Food Allergies

Talk to Us about Your Food Allergies and Diet Needs! Dillard University Dining Services is committed to offering safe and delicious food for students with special dietary needs. The dining services team is trained and knowledgeable about preparing food for those with allergies, intolerances, and celiac disease. Please be sure to inform your servers of any special dietary needs prior to placing your order. It is important to note that even with the best precautions in place, the risk of cross-contact may still exist. Some methods of preparing food are more prone to cross-contact, such as deep frying.

If you have a special dietary need, please inform the general manager, Yolanda Holland at, or send us a note using the feedback form. We will then arrange a meeting with our Executive Chef and Campus Dietitian to develop a plan that accommodates each student’s needs.

Depending on your allergy, you may also need to work with your resident advisor, roommate, friends and faculty. People around you should know if you carry an epinephrine self-injector, and about your emergency plan. Sodexo works closely with FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education). Check their site for information and resources for college students with food allergies.
