Eat Well

Eat Well

At the heart of what Yale Hospitality does every day is to ensure that bodies and minds are nourished. There is so much planning and consideration behind the meals we serve every day as well as the many special events on campus related to food, culture, and its impact on people, communities, and the environment. Yet there are many aspects of the dining experience at Yale that are equally meaningful to our students. Gathering around a table in our residential colleges is a long-standing tradition for Yale undergraduates. Food becomes an opportunity to share and exchange ideas and to create lasting memories.

Food Literacy

Our students are able to learn about food through the varied lenses of historical context, cultural heritage, well-being and environmental sustainability – while enjoying a very special meal and maybe even experience new flavors! Learn More

Dietary Accommodations

Leah Beck, R.D.N,  is part of the core team that designs our menu architecture and ensures that students have access to healthy, nutritious and allergen-friendly meals across campus. Leah works collaboratively with dieticians at Yale Health Plan and Student Accessibility Services to broadly support the needs of Yale’s students.

We recognize that safety is a top priority for students with food allergies. Our team works to ensure that everyone can experience the variety we are proud to offer throughout our responsibly-sourced, healthy, and delicious menus.
