But First, Breakfast: Trying the New and Improved Suna Breakfast

The next morning, I rolled out of bed and awaited a text message from Suna. Sure enough, a text came precisely at the beginning of the 10-minute delivery window notifying me that my order was ready! All I had to do was step outside of my dorm building to retrieve it. As someone whose breakfast typically consists of scarfing down overnight oats or eating a sugary muffin from a campus eatery, getting a beautifully packaged breakfast delivered directly to me felt uber-luxurious. I was already giddy about Suna’s seamless delivery process, so could hardly wait to dig in and try what I ordered.

Dining Hall Diversity: Being Vegetarian at Cornell

As I navigate my way through West Campus dining halls, Trillium, Terrace and yes, even Okenshields, I realize my appreciation for Cornell’s food extends beyond the meals the University provides and into the accessibility and openness this community has for vegetarians and vegans alike.

DEMASSA & DELGADO | Allergies Don’t Take Weekends Off

Over 15 million Americans have food allergies. One-third of them are allergic to more than one major allergen: peanut, tree nut, milk, soy, shellfish, eggs, wheat and gluten. There are over 500 members of the Cornell community who adhere to a gluten-free diet, according to Michele Lefebvre, Cornell’s director of nutrition management. Each year in the U.S., 200,000 people require emergency medical care for an allergic reaction to food. Commendably, Cornell has an allergen-free dining hall, a single-use rule for dining hall plates, separate service utensils for each item and labeling of major allergens for each menu item.
