RALEIGH, N.C. (March 15, 2013) – In response to several requests, NC State’s University Dining now offers five gluten-free sandwich options in its catered boxed lunch program. The change began this week.

University Dining has long offered gluten-free options in the various dining halls, including a special toaster for gluten-free bread. Lisa Eberhart, the university dietician, said she is glad to see the change take place in the catering program as well.

“We are always trying to provide the best experience for our customers,” Eberhart said. “This is a great step in that direction.”

The following sandwiches are now available:

  • Veggie Delight
  • Club
  • Lone Wolf Ham
  • Lone Wolf Turkey
  • Chicken Salad

Each sandwich comes with a gluten free cookie, chips and soda. Orders can include a fruit salad, carrot raisin salad or a homemade (from scratch) potato salad, which are all gluten-free. All sandwiches are served on gluten free bagels.

Also starting this week is a vegan, gluten-free boxed lunch. This includes a Mediterranean salad with chick peas and balsamic vinaigrette, along with chips and fruit as side options.

All staff will use special equipment when preparing the boxed lunches. University Dining has ordered a special kit for the knives, cutting boards and other utensils. Dining staff have already been trained in preparation techniques.
