Simply3 at Bethel University

The Simply3 station at Bethel University provides safe and appetizing food choices for our
customers with food allergies and gluten intolerance. All foods served at this station are
prepared with ingredients that do not contain milk, nuts (peanuts and tree nuts), or gluten. The
station uses separate equipment/utensils, preparation areas, and storage areas to minimize the
potential of allergens or gluten in our Simply3 foods.
The menu rotates daily and includes a variety of protein (i.e., chicken, beef, lentils), vegetables
(i.e., broccoli, carrots, green beans), and starches (i.e., rice, potato, quinoa. There is a salad
option available too. 
The station is incorporated into the servery to allow students, even those without allergy
concerns, to enjoy the wholesome food selections. We ask that guests do not bring food from
other stations and only use the plates provided by our servers at Simply3.
Simply3 team members are carefully trained to prepare and serve safe food. We provide training
throughout the year for all employees and our managers and supervisors also hold AllerTrainU™
While the Simply3 station is designed to allow customers an easy way to avoid allergens and
gluten, we encourage our customers with special dietary needs to connect with our chef,
registered dietitian, and general manager to ensure an enjoyable dining experience. Please contact us at 574-807-7607.

Food Allergies

We take pride in serving you wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator.

We want to meet one-on-one with anyone who has individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form.
