To all those Duckies with allergies planning to attend, here is a post to make you feel a little more at ease.
The first and best thing you can do before attending is inform us of your allergies or dietary restrictions.
- be specific about your list of allergies or allergy
- tell us your concerns (we don't want frantic and anxious Duckies running around the conference wondering if they can eat something or not)
Find a volunteer or Professor Riddell and inform them of your dietary restrictions and they will point you in the right direction. They can talk to the staff and ensure that what you want to eat won't kill you or make you sick.
We have vegetarian and Gluten Free options. If dairy is an issue, let us know (or maybe have some Lactaid on hand). If you are Vegan please advise before attending so we can ensure that you will be able to eat something.
Just a tip for people with allergies: bring snacks if you feel unsure or want a little something off menu or to tame a random food craving.
Also as an FYI for people who want some little extras or wonder where they can get food at night (if you are a night owl or like to party):
- there is a Tim Horton's on Campus if you ever need a fix (although they will not be open on Saturday and they close early on Friday)
- party seekers can go to The Golden Lion Pub for a microbrew or late night McDonald's 24hr window in Downtown Lennoxville (students just walk up to the drive-through window and order [and yes we know we are special here])
