We know dining is such an important part of campus life, and we want all students to have a successful dining experience. We believe in creating true partnerships: between you and our entire dining team – from our chefs to our cooks to our servers. Our goal is to meet the needs of all students with a food-forward approach so that everyone feels included and valued.

Safe Dining on Campus
We believe that food should provide more than sustenance alone; it should be a full-flavored and vibrant experience. Our communications team surveyed best practices in allergen-friendly branding, from other universities’ offerings to involvement of our own Pitt Allergy-Free Dining Committee. This research and discussion culminated in the creation of Flourish, our very own Pitt allergen-friendly brand. Through Flourish, we hope to evoke the feeling of nourishment which allows students to thrive and succeed. Flourish, is our allergen-friendly station, that features a rotation of menu items voided of the 9 common allergens and is located in the Eatery.
All Management team members on campus are ServSafe Certified.
