eXpress Lunch/Pack-Outs/Sick Trays/Food Allergies and Other Medical Concerns

eXpress Lunch
eXpress Lunch meals are available Monday through Friday at East Dining Hall when classes are in session, to students whose schedules conflict with lunch or dinner dining hall hours.

Pack-Outs
Picnics and pack-outs can be arranged for college sponsored events that will be held during dining hall hours. See link below.

Illness
If a student is too ill to go to the dining hall or is being responsible and is practicing social distancing, Dining Services has a sick tray option for students.  Ill students should send a note and their One Card with a roommate or friend to the dining hall and that person will be given a to-go container to take food back to the sick student. If a student is ill for a longer period of time, he/she can work with their Hall Director to submit their ID number to Dining Services so they can keep it on file and then the friend would just need to give the sick student’s name to the checker.

Food Allergies and Other Medical Concerns

All serving stations in each dining hall have ingredient lists detailing all of the items that in each offering. Please consult these at any time if you have any questions about what ingredients are in each dish. Anyone who wishes is welcome to speak with one of the chefs on duty at any time with questions about the food being served. There are also celiac-friendly stations in both dining halls.

Students with medical problems that require special attention should send an email message detailing the nature of the allergy or other food issue to bonappetit@carleton.edu and the culinary staff will then be prepared to discuss accommodations with the student.
