Special Dietary Needs

Our Executive Chef is well educated regarding many dietary needs. Menus are rotated on a four-week cycle to provide the best selection and avoid too much repetition. We encourage all students to let us know if there are any special needs they might have. We always have an Open-Door policy. We strive for all students to have a good selection of food when dining here at Christendom College. As with everything, we stress “Everything in Moderation.”
