College Life For New Celiac
Posted 28 July 2004 - 01:45 PM
I phoned the private university where my child attends, with my students permission, and spoke to the cafeteria manager. I explained the new diagnoses and the gluten-free diet. The manager asked lots of questions. I explained that I would be happy to bring some food to the cafe freezer to help out. I was thrilled when she replied, "Isn't your student on a meal plan?" I said, "Yes". She said, "Well, I am happy to have you bring food and I will store it for you, but it is my responsibility to provide safe meals! " I almost cried.
God is so Good!

I am impressed! I'm a Junior who will have a confirmed diagnosis in one week. I attend a small Liberal Arts College that makes accommodations for those with dietary restrictions. I'm not quite sure what this entails, but it's amazing that the college is letting your daughter have a reasonable amount of control over what is being put in her body. I hope the Food Services director and I can work out a similar agreement.
I was wondering, what in particular does this cafeteria do to prevent Gluten cross-contamination? It is my biggest concern.
Thank you for listening,
