My son said Colorado State dorm was very good about gluten-free food. At the deli sandwich line - off with the gloves, hands washed, a purple "tray" comes out, then the wrapper paper, then the gluten-free bread and toppings from a special place. gluten-free food on the line is not mixed up with other food or utensils.

He talked with several girls getting gluten-free food. All told him they never got sick from it. So a good gluten-free food program may be a way to meet girls, too!
