East Carolina University has earned recognition as a “GREAT School” by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), a national non-profit organization dedicated to those affected by celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders. The honor signifies that the dining services staff has completed comprehensive gluten-free training and pledges to uphold gluten-free protocols that encourage a safe dining experience for students with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
“The number of customers with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity that are dining in our campus locations are on the rise. As we see this number steadily increase each year, it is important for our dining team to take any steps we can to ensure we are serving foods that are safe for this group to eat. The “GREAT School’s” program offers additional training as well as the implementation of policies and procedures that support our team’s efforts to feed those that need foods made without gluten,” says Janie Owens, Nutrition Director for ECU Campus Dining Services.
An estimated 1% of the population has celiac disease, a serious genetic autoimmune disease, and an estimated 6% of the population has gluten sensitivity. Both conditions require a strict gluten-free diet. While many restaurants are introducing gluten-free menus to accommodate those who have this special dietary need, the gluten-free food is not always prepared with the necessary precautions.
NFCA’s GREAT Schools program is an online, multimedia course that teaches dining services managers and staff how to properly prepare and serve gluten-free meals. Participants learn how to identify gluten-free ingredients; avoid cross-contamination with gluten-containing foods; and answer gluten-free students’ questions. Recognition as a GREAT School lasts for two years.
“There’s more to serving gluten-free food than replacing a side of pasta with rice,” said Alice Bast, Founder and President of NFCA. “GREAT Kitchens teaches a comprehensive, team approach that is essential when responding to any medically necessary dietary request.”
East Carolina University’s gluten-free options include:
· Individually wrapped items such as Gluten-Free Pizza Crust or Gluten-Free Breads and Snacks
· Made to Order Pasta Entrees with Gluten Free Pasta
· Fresh Made to Order Carved Meats, Steamed Vegetables and Grains such as Quinoa
East Carolina University welcomes all students affected by gluten-related disorders to visit their dining hall and try these delicious meals.
