Change is coming to the dining environment at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, change that not only promises to make eating on campus more pleasurable but also healthier—and safer for those with food allergy issues. That’s because the dining program has committed to an upgrade in the nutritious aspects of its offerings and has already rolled out the first set of changes this fall.

Among the additions and alterations to the dining program are an allergen-friendly commissary kitchen called Nourish that produces dishes made without wheat, milk, egg, soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts or most tree nuts (except coconut); a completely vegan concept called Garden Bistro; a ramen bowl concept featuring fresh, healthy ingredients; and a new menu at the Carnegie Mellon Café location that now features superfood-filled smoothies and breakfast bowls. In addition, the campus food truck has changed its menu to feature more healthful offerings by way of Indian specialties like roti wraps.
