McMaster University Hospitality Services analyzes and provides students and other customers with nutritional information guidelines about meals served in the dining units on campus. Visit our nutrition page for more information at http://hospitality.mcmaster.ca/menu/nutrition/nutrition.html. Please note the information posted is for guidelines and reference only. If you have a serious dietary restriction, allergy or medical condition, we strongly suggest you contact our office and your questions or concerns will be forwarded to the appropriate manager.
McMaster University Hospitality Services will work with students who have dietary restrictions that cause serious illness and help meet their needs with food products available to them in our dining units.
At McMaster we have a very diverse student population. When preparing our menus we take in account our diversity and offer many choices across campus. Halal meats are available in our dining establishments on a regular basis and most times are posted on the menu boards. Halal meats are prepared alongside our regular menu offerings as per our normal department standards. Halal symbols identify Halal alternative available or you can enquire at the locations while you are ordering on what options are available to you.
Kosher style and certified menu offerings are available at Bridges Vegetarian and Vegan Cafe. Prepackaged Kosher sandwiches, danishes and other selections are also available in La Piazza.
Making the choice to follow a Vegetarian or Vegan diet is ideal for everyday life, balance and health. There are many choices throughout our dining establishment with a wide range of offerings. Bridges Vegetarian Cafe has won awards for its creative menu and offerings, East Meets West Bistro offers diverse vegan options and Centro@Commons has a large self serve salad bar as part of their operations. Look for the symbols to identify vegan and vegetarian dishes
McMaster University Hospitality Services makes every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. Every effort is made to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies. In addition, we label items with possible allergen-containing ingredients; however, there is always a risk of contamination. There is also a possibility that the manufacturers of the commercial foods we use could change the formulation or substitute at any time, without notice. Customers concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk. McMaster University Hospitality Services will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed, or items one may come in contact with while eating at any University establishments.
