Students with health-related dietary needs, food allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances can be accommodated by Pioneer Foodservice, Cedarville University’s foodservice provider.

Gluten-free: There is a gluten-free zone in the dining hall where gluten-free foods are readily available. Other menu items throughout the dining hall that are gluten-free are labeled as “gluten-free”.

Dairy-free: Almond milk and soy milk are available to all students. Foods that are dairy-free are labeled as “dairy-free.”

Special Meals: If a student requires a restricted diet because of a medical diagnosis, an application to request special meals should be completed. Special meal accommodation requests are processed through the Disability Services office. Please note that the application is a general application for Disability Services but also serves to provide the information necessary for restricted diets. The application should be submitted with accompanying documentation from the student’s diagnosing physician that clearly states the student’s diagnosis, the impact of the diagnosis, and the necessary food restrictions. Pioneer Foodservice staff members are trained in the food preparation process to prevent cross-contamination of foods when students require a restricted diet. Once the Disabilities Compliance Coordinator reviews the student’s application and accompanying documentation, the student will be contacted for a meeting.
