Penn. university adds Simple Servings allergy station to dining hall
Nov. 25—For students like Gregory Yannes, finding a decent meal is at your own risk.
Yannes is an 18-year-old freshman at Lehigh University. His allergies make a typical college dining hall a minefield of decisions.
Lehigh University introduced a new station this fall for students like Yannes at their Rathbone Student Restaurant.
Simple Servings is a station that provides meals without gluten, milk, eggs, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish or wheat – the eight most common allergens, according to Sodexo, which runs the university’s dining services.
