Simple Servings at The Court at Benziger
The station is incorporated into the servery to allow students, even those without allergy concerns, to enjoy the wholesome food selections. We ask that guests do not bring food from other stations and only use the plates provided by our servers at Simple Servings.
While the Simple Servings station is designed to allow customers an easy way to avoid allergens and gluten, we encourage our customers with special dietary needs to connect with our registered dietitian. To ensure an enjoyable dining experience, please contact our dietitian Kelly Pearson, RD, CDN at Kelly.Pearson3@sodexo.com.
