Dear Parents and Guardians,

We’re excited to welcome your student back to CCA!

We believe that food has an important role to play in building culture and community on campus. As the dining services provider at California College of the Arts, it’s our job to ensure each student feels welcome when they dine with us, and that they receive delicious meals that meet their dietary needs. Here’s what your student can expect while they dine with us on campus:

Meals cooked from scratch by our passionate chefs No corporate recipes or cycle menus here, please! “From scratch” means everything, from stocks and sauces to salsa and pizza dough.

Ingredients sourced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Bon Appétit began making commitments to sustainable and ethical practices long before it became trendy. We serve only cage-free, certified humane eggs; sustainable seafood; certified humane ground beef, and pork raised in group housing instead of inhumane gestation crates — and that’s just a sample of our many commitments.

A dedicated dining website Menus, hours of operation, and much more are available 24/7 on Our Circle of Responsibility menu icons provide information about ingredients in each dish and our feedback form at the bottom of the page provides a handy place to send comments or questions directly to our team. (Pro tip, scroll down the page and have your student sign up for menu mail to have the menus delivered daily to their inbox.)

Abundant choices for those with special diets Your student will continue to find a plethora of plant-forward, vegetarian, and vegan options as well as ones that are made without gluten-containing ingredients every day.

A supportive and hands-on approach to allergies We’re happy to work with any students with food allergies or other dietary restrictions to make sure everyone can enjoy plenty of delicious food, safely, with us. All of our chefs and managers receive FARE-certified food allergen awareness training and pass that training on to our hourly employees through dedicated bi-annual training and daily reminders — keeping allergies top of mind. Our team will foster individual communication with students with food allergies, in line with best practices outlined in the FARE restaurant guidelines.

Surprises! We don’t want your student to get bored, so we’re always trying out new recipes and ideas. And if they have ideas, encourage them to talk to us! Our doors are always open.

As always, we welcome any questions or feedback from parents and guardians.
