Celiac.com 07/13/2015 - Gluten-free students at two elite liberal arts colleges in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are now able to enjoy exclusive gluten-free dining areas.
Both Haverford College and Bryn Mawr College have created dedicated, exclusively gluten-free dining areas for their students with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, according to a report by Campus Reform.
Bryn Mawr opened their gluten-free dining area in 2013, and Haverford followed in 2014.
The exclusive eating areas are the brainchild of Bernie Chung-Templeton, executive director of dining services at both schools.
Each of the gluten-free dining areas has signage clearly warning students to refrain from bringing in food from outside, including the main school cafeteria.
What do you think? Do students with celiac disease or gluten intolerance deserve dedicated, exclusively gluten-free dining options?
