Why is the availability of products changing in my café?
Due to the cumulative impact of the coronavirus, most companies are confronting labor shortages and many are also battling a scarcity of raw materials. This can mean that deliveries are delayed and/or certain foods and products such as your café’s standard to-go containers and disposable cutlery are temporarily unavailable. Bon Appétit’s on-site and corporate purchasing teams are working hard to source appropriate alternative products and secure adequate supplies in advance but you should expect last-minute menu changes or shifts in how to-go meals are packaged. If you have concerns about the availability of a particular product please contact Scott Zoellick: [email protected]

Serving Students with Food Allergies and Celiac Disease
The dining services team is well-trained in food allergy awareness and offer a number of options for students with food allergies and celiac disease. This includes communication about and modification to existing menu items, special preparation of menu items, and access to special products as agreed upon with students.
Daily menus for each café can be accessed at beloit-college.cafebonappetit.com. Menu items that are appropriate options for most students with celiac disease are labeled as “made without gluten-containing ingredients” and can be filtered to streamline searching using the dietary preferences filter. Top-9 allergens are included in menu names and/or descriptions whenever possible. For more on eating with a food allergy in our café, visit this page and view the guide on Food Allergies and Celiac Disease at Beloit. Further questions about ingredients can be answered by our trained managers/chefs on-site.
The Commons offers a station dedicated to providing meals made without gluten-containing ingredients. The Avoiding Gluten station provides menu choices that are based on ingredients that are naturally gluten-free or are gluten-free alternatives to traditional options. At this station, food is prepared by a trained culinarian, in a separate area of the kitchen, and following specific procedures to minimize risk of cross-contact.
For questions about these services or to request food allergy accommodations, students should contact:

Eat Right — For You
When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
