Meet The Dietitian 


Andrea Hersh

Andrea, our campus dietitian, is a licensed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). Andrea works with the dining team to ensure there are healthy choices for all students, including those on special diets (V, GF, allergies, etc). She specializes in a variety of nutrition-related areas and is here to answer all of your questions! Andrea is passionate about nutrition because she truly believes that good health is the foundation of happiness. When working with students, Andrea provides a safe space to discuss wellness goals and encourages students to strive for progress, not perfection. All students attending the University of the Sciences are welcomed to meet with Andrea for nutrition consultations. The RDN can work with you to provide guidance on healthy eating, athletic performance, vegetarian/vegan diets, food allergies and intolerances, weight loss, and any other nutritional topics.

Menu Allergens

Our menu system provides ingredient statements specifically highlighting the big eight allergens: milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, & soy. Guests may check on the presence of allergens prior to planning their meals using the online menu, Bite app, and nutrition calculator. The absence of an allergen listed on posted or electronic product signage is not a guarantee that the product is free of that allergen. The guest is responsible for communicating their allergy to a supervisor or manager to ensure safety.

Food Allergies

Talk to us about your food allergies and dietary needs!
We take pride in sourcing wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. We are all passionate about serving students. From General Manager to Front Line Servers, we work diligently to address students’ specific needs, especially those with food allergies, celiac disease, or other special diet needs.

A team approach led by you, our educated consumer, is the best preparation for a safe school year free of allergic reactions. We want to meet one-on-one with all of our customers who have individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form.

Have an issue with gluten, tree-nuts or peanuts? Check out MyZone!

Our MyZone station helps to ensure your food is safely prepared to minimize cross-contact with gluten, peanuts and tree nuts. In addition to a balanced meal at lunch and dinner, we carry an assortment of gluten, peanut & tree-nut free cereals, desserts and breads.

The menu items at MyZone are prepared using recipes and ingredients that do not contain gluten. However, they are prepared in a facility that also prepares recipes with allergens such as soy, egg, fish, milk, shellfish, wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, and gluten. Additionally, we cannot control exposure to allergens or gluten by food manufacturers or our suppliers.  

Need additional assistance eating on campus due to a medical condition such as a food allergy?
