Copper Hood Disclaimer
Our Copper Hood stations at Fresh Food Co., O’Hill Dining Room, and Runk Dining Room are free of the “BIG 8” Allergens and are Gluten-Free. All products used in the entrees and sides at this station are vetted thoroughly by U.Va. Dining’s Nutritionist, Dr. Paula Caravati. All employees who work at this station are trained extensively and repeatedly using the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) ServSafe and AllerTrain programs. All cooking spaces, equipment and utensils are properly cleaned, stored and disinfected according to FARE and food safety standards. We take immense pride in our Copper Hood program and will continue to expand the menu selection and improve the experience for our students with food allergies and intolerances.
At your request, we have included the Copper Hood menu in our online listing for these locations on our website. This means that the following disclaimer is displayed at the bottom of each menu item: Aramark relies on our vendors' allergy warning and ingredient listings. Because we operate a commercial kitchen where ingredient substitutions, recipe revisions and cross-contact with allergens is possible, Aramark cannot guarantee that any food item will be completely free of allergens. However, as noted above, at U.Va. Dining we vet each product with the vendor annually. We also work personally with the students to ensure their needs are being met – at the Copper Hood and all other stations in our dining rooms. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding our dining program.
