Simple Zone

Simple Zone Logo

Simple Zone is a designated Gluten Free & Nut Free (peanuts & tree nuts [including coconut]) pantry located in Miley Café.

We understand that dining with these common allergens presents many challenges, and we strive to provide an excellent customer experience to all guests.

Simple Zone accommodates students with dietary needs by providing food items that are prepared with precautions against cross-contact for students with gluten-related disorders (Celiac Disease, wheat allergy, gluten intolerance) & nut allergies. Simple Zone is an allergen-friendly zone, not allergen-free. Therefore, items in Simple Zone may contain, soy, eggs, dairy, fish, shellfish, or sesame.

This inclusive dining program allows guests to enjoy a wide variety of safe Gluten Free and Nut Free alternatives reflecting offerings in the main dining hall to ensure a safe and low-stress experience. This supports our Gluten Free and Nut Free guests in getting the whole Salve Regina dining experience with the accommodations they need.

Please reach out to our Registered Dietitian for Access or More Information!

*Disclaimer: While procedures are taken in Simple Zone to stop the use of the restricted allergens, we cannot guarantee products from vendors and suppliers do not pose a risk for cross-contact. We cannot totally eliminate the chance and risk of cross-contact in our facility.*
