Should you go "gluten-free"? (pdf)

Each of the 8 core stations in the Monson Dining Center offer gluten-free menu options. A "Gluten-Free" sticker will help you identify items on a stations daily menu that are gluten-free, so your options will change daily.

Some items are available by request, so please feel free to ask our chefs to help you find these items. Our staff is trained in proper food handling procedures to prevent cross-contamination.
