About Food Allergies

The safety of all our students at Western is a high priority, and every year our Residence Dining team safely accommodates countless students with food allergies and intolerances.

Our team has completed an on-line Food Allergy Canada endorsed training program (Allergen Training for Foodservice and Food Retail Industry) and are knowledgeable around the importance of food-safety in the prevention of cross-contamination, and know the possible complications that can arise when a food allergen is consumed by a person with an allergy.

Our over-arching message to students coming to Western with food allergies is to self-identify. Hospitality Services at Western University supports students living with food allergies. If you have a food allergy, please identify yourself to one of our staff. We will gladly work with you to help identify safe foods. Our Nutrition Manager is also available to help.

For questions around allergy accommodations at Western or to schedule a meeting time with our team during the move-in weekend, please submit Ask Anne Online Form or contact Anne directly at (519) 661-3855.


If you eat out often order healthier choices such as whole grain breads or bagels for sandwiches; meals featuring vegetables such as stir fries, dark leafy green salads with dressing served on the side, vegetable based soups and pasta sauces; fruit salads and yogurt smoothies; bean or lentil dishes; meat or fish that are grilled or broiled instead of deep-fried.
