Peregrine Dining Hall offers an allergen free station called Simple Servings. Simple Servings is free of the following allergens: gluten, wheat, milk, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish. Daily hot entrées include a protein, vegetable and starch. Side dishes served at Simple Servings are vegan. The MyZone pantry, located in Peregrine Dining Hall, offers a space where students can access gluten, peanut and tree nut free options. The MyZone pantry is exclusively gluten, peanut and tree-nut free.
Being that peanut and tree nut allergies are very common and often the most severe among food allergies, the use of peanuts and tree nuts are avoided in campus dining. In Peregrine Dining Hall, sunflower butter is available as an alternative to peanut butter. Peanut butter is served exclusively in individual pre-sealed packages. Peanuts and tree nuts are not used in cooking; however baked goods may contain nuts at times and will be clearly labeled. Asking questions is always welcomed and encouraged!

There are a variety of choices for both vegan and vegetarian diets across campus. Peregrine Dining Hall offers an exclusively vegan area called Sprout, where a hot entree is served daily for lunch and dinner. Vegan desserts and non-dairy milks are available as well.
