Simple Servings – George Mason University was featured as one of the top 100 Allergy-Friendly Colleges in 2023! The Simple Servings station avoids peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, wheat, soy, milk, eggs, and gluten. There is also a separate fridge for cold condiments, desserts, and bread options.
Halal Options- Look for our Halal labels! Meat served at our Simple Servings is certified halal, just check the label. If you do not see Halal options available, find a staff member. There are always hot meals available upon request!
The Mason Mench Kosher Cart – Find hot, Kosher meals served in Southside from the Kosher Cart. To make sure the kashrut status of food is maintained, Mason Dining partnered with a local mashgiach who will be supervising food under Kosher standards.
