The gluten-free section now reads:

We at ARAMARK are continually striving to improve our selection of food offered to those with dietary needs. We offer services to those who are Celiac (No Gluten), Nut Allergies, Dairy Allergies, Vegetarian, and Vegan.

If you require a meal prepared with no gluten ingredients, please ask when ordering. Also look for the gluten-free symbols on our products to show that the item contains no gluten ingredients. If the symbol appears on a menu please tell the server you need it gluten free.

Please Be Aware that we are not a certified gluten free facility. We strive to reduce the risk of cross contamination as much as possible, however there is a risk of cross contamination during food preparation.

When you ask for something to be prepared Gluten Free, Our servers change their gloves and use a fresh cutting board and utensils. When sandwiches are prepared, a fresh container of product (cheese and veggies) is used to further reduce the risk of cross contamination.
