​Nutrition Overview

Overview 

We all make food choices based on a variety of personal convictions: individual, personal health, cultural, religious, ethical, environmental and economical.  Dining and Summer Conferences (DSC) recognizes that and offers a variety of options throughout our campus locations.  You can view our menus and nutrition information through our online database, NetNutrition.

​Allergies & Special Diets

In a typical student population, there are between 5-10% of members that have some type of allergy or food sensitivity.  DSC makes every attempt to identify ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies through our NetNutrition program and nutritional labeling.  Our culinary staff are instructed on the severity of food allergies and proper production of allergen free meals.  However, our DSC kitchens and bakery are not allergen free spaces and customers concerned with food allergies should contact the DSC Registered Dietitian to discuss the options offered.

The best way for DSC to help you have the best experience at UW-Stevens Point is to plan ahead. Before you arrive please contact our Registered Dietitian to discuss any specific needs or concerns.
