Saint Anselm College Policy on Food Allergy Accommodations for Students
Saint Anselm College is committed to reducing the risk to staff, students and visitors with regards to the provision of food and the consumption of allergens in that food which could lead to an allergic reaction.
We train our food service staff on the severity of food allergies. This training includes instruction on food allergies, including food products that contain allergens, cross-contamination and proper food storage and preparation.
We label items with possible allergen-containing ingredients. We understand that there is always a risk of contamination and ask that students with food allergies be aware of the risk.
Students with special requests due to a food allergy are strongly encouraged to make the college aware of these needs as early as possible when they begin their studies. The following procedure must be followed:
1. Students must provide current and appropriate medical documentation to the Director of Health Services to support their request for a medically necessary diet.
2. Students will be asked to sign a release so that this information can be related to Dining Services.
3. Students will be required to meet with the Director of Dining Services to discuss their needs, take a tour of the kitchen, and learn of the food options available to them.
4. An individual plan will be developed for the student's need.
5. When appropriate, a student shall carry an Epi-Pen with them and be able to use it in an event of an allergic reaction. Students are responsible for ensuring that their Epi-Pens have not expired.

If you lose it, call the Davison Hall front office at x7750 immediately to report it as missing. If your card is turned in, it will be filed. If not, your card will be shut off. You will then have to purchase a new ID for $10.
If your meal card is damaged in any way, it will be replaced at no charge, but you must bring the damaged card in to trade.
