Managing Food Allergies at School
“One in 12 students has a food allergy.”
SAGE Dining Services ® has done some research and found that about 8% of their client population suffers from food allergies. Bryn Athyn College is one of these proud clients, and it’s comforting to know that SAGE® is looking out for us all along the way as our food is sourced, stored, prepared, and presented.
As some of us know all too well, a food allergy is not just dangerous, but it can also make even the simplest daily eating events stressful or worrisome. SAGE® takes many precautions to mitigate allergen contamination, and they also do a great job of keeping you informed and helping you navigate your options.
If you’re wondering how to handle your allergy while eating away from home, check out the blog post that SAGE® put up about their commitment to keeping you safe in our dining hall. You can also download their free mobile app, “Touch of SAGE” for Android or iOS systems, which will allow you to filter their menu according to your dietary needs.
