SUNY Cobleskill Offers Allergen-Free Dining
November 18, 2013
Cobleskill Auxiliary Services (C.A.S.) is now offering an allergen-free dining environment in Champlin Hall called GENerations, a dining concept that incorporates the ever-growing prevalence of dietary restrictions resulting from allergies, which will be represented by the color purple. The ultimate goal of GENerations is to provide safe, delicious, and nutritious dining options for those who need or want worry-free variety. Free of peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and gluten, this will reduce the risk of cross contamination with the allergens that cause anaphylaxis. Purple is the color chosen to represent the allergen-free environment and offerings after consultation with leaders in the allergen-free movement, Nancy Lane and Carrie Anderson. The color shows that those items can never enter the main kitchen. Having areas such as these will not only provide better choices for our students, but parents can also be assured that we are doing our best to take care of their children while they are students here.
