By protecting and improving our environment, the communities where we do business and the students we serve, Sodexo makes every day a better day and every tomorrow a better tomorrow.

Students with Dietary Restrictions

  • You should begin by contacting Bill Masullo ( or Chris Linn ( They are the Sodexo dining services managers at Linfield (Sodexo is the company that handles all of Linfield's food services). Bill and Chris will work with you to figure out how your dietary needs can be best accommodated.
  • If, after working with Bill and Chris, you feel that the meal plan option you are currently on is not working for you, you can contact Allison Horn (, director of Facilities Services. He will help you determine the next course of action.
  • Though rare, students with extremely sensitive or complex food allergies and intolerances may not be able to be adequately accommodated. If you have given everything else a try and things are still not working for you, you can obtain a meal plan exemption form from the Office of Residence Life (located in Melrose Hall). Students who live in the residence halls must be on a meal plan. If a student can not be on any meal plan, then the option is for the student to find off-campus housing and cook on their own.
  • If you do not have a regular healthcare provider with whom you can discuss whether you should remain on a meal plan, you can meet with a nurse practitioner at Linfield's Student Health Center.

Mindful offerings meet stringent nutritional criteria based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Each meal part is limited in calories, has fewer than 30% of calories as fat, fewer than 10 % of calories as saturated fat, and is restricted in sodium, and cholesterol. Chefs in our test kitchen develop recipes to meet these criteria in delicious fashion! Look for the Mindful icon to indulge in the healthy and delicious items offered at each meal.

From recipes that include the most nutritious mix of ingredients to offering educational resources for positive lifestyle habits, healthy options are the result of a team dedicated to advancing the well-being of the entire campus community.

Another important part of our focus on health and wellness is the use of seasonal menus, featuring fresh and healthy ingredients - many of which are grown by local or regional farmers. Every season has its own unique produce that is showcased in delicious signature dishes to highlight the distinct flavors and natural appeal of seasonal items.

For students who have special dietary and nutritional needs we have informational resources and customized menus to address your needs. These menus meet the strictest compliance standards, without sacrificing flavor, texture or presentation.
