Staff Training and Awareness
Having our staff aware of student’s limitations will ensure a safe and pleasurable dining experience, which is of utmost importance to us. Please know that all Holy Cross Dining staff is required to attend a biannual food allergen awareness training regarding the potential severity of food allergies. Whenever you eat away from home, you should notify your server if you have a food allergy.
