A Note to Our Guests

Brown Dining Services, like many food service operators, has been impacted by the current challenges facing the food industry. Nationwide, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the food industry in many ways, such as increased labor shortages arising from new demands and restrictions on workers; changes in consumer expectations; closures of food-production facilities, and restricted food trade policies. These changes are resulting in considerable challenges to the food supply chain.

Because of food distribution issues, Dining Services is increasingly compelled to substitute the food products we typically purchase for those that are not part of our menu planning. This is happening at unpredictable times and forces substitutions with little notice, requiring us to make menu changes and adjustments as needed. The unavoidable consequence is that the food we serve will not always match what appears on the online menu tool and the ingredients listed there. We recognize this has an impact on you, our guests, and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times.

If you have food allergies, we urge you to contact Dining Services. Please reach out to michelle_blais@brown.edu (Registered Dietitian). If you have any questions regarding an ingredient or recipe, please ask an onsite manager or make an alternative selection.

We remain committed to providing high quality food and service to our guests, and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we deal with these national issues.
