Gluten free expert, author, coach and advocate Jules Shepard hosts the Gluten Free Voice Radio show offering GF news, interviews with intriguing guests, gluten free baking tips and otherwise lively conversation.
Going off to college is an exciting, but daunting experience for anyone. Going off to college when you're living gluten free or have other food allergies can be downright scary. Jules' guest this episode is Beth Winthrop, National Wellness Director for Campus Services of Sodexo. Sodexo Campus Services has over 850 Campus education partnerships in the U.S., and maintains close to 100 million square feet of space, serving 1 million meals a day to more than 5 million college students. For Sodexo, Beth developed the "My Zone" personal pantry, and Sodexo's Simple Servings -- the allergen-safe resident dining option which won Food Management's 2013 Best Wellness Concept.
Beth will explain how Sodexo is serving the needs of celiac, gluten sensitive and food allergy students on campus, and walk through the training their staff and chefs have received to assist students with dietary restrictions. She will also offer tips for choosing the right college or university to meet your health requirements.
