UMaine Dining is committed to providing menu options that allow you to choose satisfying, delicious and well-balanced meals. We believe in providing tools and information that can help you make informed decisions about your menu choices, too. As part of this effort, we are working on a database of Nutrition Facts for many of the menu items available in our dining facilities.

If you have a food allergy or intolerance, the staff of UMaine Dining will be pleased to assist you in determining whether a particular menu item contains an ingredient that may cause a reaction. It is highly recommended that you contact our office (207-581-3463) if you have a severe food allergy or intolerance in order to discuss the options available. The allergy icons on our menu cards are displayed based on recipe ingredients, which have been carefully screened by a nutrition assistant. Cross-contamination is possible as our kitchens are home to other foods containing allergens and many of our facilities utilize self-service dining style.
