UPDATE: MSU set to open allergen-free dining hall

By  | 

EAST LANSING, MI (WILX) -- Michigan State University's first allergen-free dining hall is officially set to open Monday.

The cafeteria, located in Owen Hall, is named "Thrive" and will serve food that does not contain any of the most common allergens.

This includes: milk, eggs, peanuts, and fish.

The facility is also gluten free.

The university's dietitian says about one in eight Michigan State students has some sort of food allergy.

MSU says the goal is to make safe food that is also tasty.

And just because it's allergen-free, doesn't mean it won't have options.

There are three stations: comfort food, street food, and even one for gluten-free chicken tenders and fries.
