Gluten-Free at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, Feb 10, 2011
reviewer: Mooleynerf from Annandale-on-Hudson, NY
Bard is not the most accommodating place for gluten-free. It took almost three months of pressuring from me, the Director of Disability Services, and my mother (a staff member at the NFCA) to get chiefs and staff trained on how to serve gluten-free. Even after that, I witnessed many incidents of cross-contamination and was finally given permission to go off the meal plan in late November. I encourage everyone who has Celiac Disease to register for Disability Services, for it will greatly help if you run into any incidences. Kline, the dining hall, does serve gluten-free food, I just found myself too sensitive (and fed up) to continue to eat there. My biggest piece of advice is to ADVOCATE. Don\'t be afraid of kicking ass to get what you want. The dining hall is there to serve YOU and if you\'re getting sick or if there\'s not a variety of options, make a lot of noise about it until someone listens. I am thinking about starting a gluten-free club on campus next year, the purpose being to provide support for students, exchange recipes, cook dinners, and organize meetings with the nutritionist on campus. If it\'s not started next year, it will definitely be started within my time at Bard (I will be graduating in 2014), so I can promise anyone thinking about applying that I will be here to help if they need it.
