Each of the 8 core stations in the Monson Dining Center offer lactose-free menu options. A "Lactose-Free" sticker will help you identify items on a stations daily menu that are lactose-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.


Fresh hand fruit (apples, bananas, oranges, etc.) are available at every meal and fresh cut fruit is available during breakfast.

Hot cereal and toppings are available at breakfast in the soup wells. These sometimes contain dairy depending on the hot cereal so asking the chef is recommended.

A large variety of vegetable and protein-based items are available at the "Make Your Own Salad" bar to be combined for a customized lactose-free salad at lunch and dinner.

Vinaigrette-based salad dressings are lactose-free with two options available daily as well French dressing and olive oil and vinegar.

At our "Salad Toss" bar there are 4 core salads and a LTO (Limited Time Offer) daily. The Garden Vegetable Salad is also lactose-free.
