Dietary Accommodations

Restricted Diets

Pioneer College Caterers is the foodservice provider for Cedarville University. While many food items in the dining hall are labeled with ingredients, students with additional questions about any food item are invited to ask questions of the Pioneer staff.

Gluten-free: The dining hall provides gluten-free menu items that are readily available for students with gluten sensitivity or students who prefer to eat a gluten-free diet. The gluten-free area is NOT appropriate for students with celiac disease. Students with celiac disease are advised to request special meals to ensure that there is no cross-contamination.

Dairy-free: In addition to regular milk, almond milk and soy milk are also available to all students.

Special meals for food allergies and medical conditions: Accommodation requests for special meals because of food allergies, celiac disease, or other medical conditions can be made through Pioneer by completing an application for special meals. Special meal requests require medical documentation from the physician who diagnosed the medical condition or food allergy. The medical documentation must include a current statement that confirms foods to be eliminated from the student’s diet. Documentation should be recent and no more than two years old.

The Pioneer staff is trained in the food preparation process to prevent cross-contamination of foods when a student requires special meals. There is a separate area of the kitchen used just for this purpose. Applications and accompanying medical documentation of the need for special meals should be submitted through the following electronic application for special meals rather than the general application for disability services.
