Bon Appétit at Vassar is fighting food waste and hunger by recovering surplus perishable food from our campus that would otherwise go to waste and donating it to people in need through Dutchess Outreach.
For our guests with gluten-related disorders or those avoiding gluten for other reasons, we offer “made without gluten-containing ingredient” options. To identify these options, look for items labeled “↓g”. These menu items are prepared using ingredients that do not contain gluten and steps are taken to manage the risk of cross-contact. We identify menu items in this manner (instead of “gluten-free”) because all of our food is prepared in open kitchens, so our kitchens are not gluten-free environments. For most guests, the steps we take to control for cross-contact yield choices that they can safely eat. If a guest may have reactions to smaller traces of gluten, we will work with you individually on additional dining options.
For more information about “made without gluten-containing ingredients” options and how they are prepared in your café, please speak with the onsite manager. You can also click here to learn more about gluten related disorders.

Vassar is interested in building community beyond the bounds of the campus and providing students the opportunity to experience the vibrancy of the Arlington community just off campus. In support of this initiative, students receive $100 in Arlington Bucks each semester which is accepted at all off campus establishments accepting VCASH. Check out our list of off campus vendors accepting VCASH . Unused Arlington Bucks expire at the end of the semester. With the variety and quality Arlington has to offer we’ll be surprised if you’re not looking for more!
