The actual choice of wording places a positive emphasis on those that did come to serve our guests and patients.

To make safe food as accessible as possible for our guests with allergies, we are creating an allergen-friendly kitchen this summer. Students and community members will be able to use our mobile app to place orders for allergen-friendly food and pick them up at the central kitchen. The kitchen will also produce grab-and-go options that will be distributed across campus.

But a number of students in our district study remotely due to circumstances such as chronic illness.
