The Vanderbilt chefs are very knowledgeable and willing to help out with special diets! They really encourage the students to ask them to prepare special meals in order to avoid cross-contamination. I talked with them at the beginning of the year, and they recognize me whenever I come in to the dining halls. They are awesome! However, I did not like having to wait a while before getting my food, and I preferred getting meals from the on-campus convenience stores. Vandy does bring in delicious muffins and brownies from local gluten-free bakeries, and the convenience stores (Munchie Marts) will have gluten-free frozen meals. These are great, but at times, the stores would not continue to stock the same brands on a consistent basis, and they would often run out of my favorite brands. Overall, I think most of my eating issues stemmed from my personal desire to have fast and convenient food, but next year, I definitely plan on using the dining halls more frequently and asking the chefs to prepare my meals.
