A Message from the Nutrition & Wellness Manager

Hi! I’m Heather Carrera, the Nutrition & Wellness Manager for Campus Auxiliary Services (CAS). I’m on campus to help all students experience optimal health and wellness here at SUNY Geneseo. Our mission is to provide the highest quality dining experience for our diverse campus and guests. As part of our commitment, we are able to accommodate those who have special diets, food allergies, and other health concerns.

We take special diets and allergies very seriously. I am available to meet with students one-on-one to address any nutrition-related concerns such as food allergies, food sensitivities and intolerances, dietary restrictions, and general health and nutrition questions. While we label all menu items with icons to denote whether they are gluten-friendly, vegetarian or vegan, and dairy-free, it is important to remember that we can only truly help the customers who reach out to us to discuss their needs. With gluten-friendly, kosher, vegetarian, vegan, and top-9 allergen-friendly stations on campus, there are options that suit everyone.

GF= Gluten-friendly, VT= Vegetarian, VG= Vegan, DF= Dairy-Free, C= Contains Coconut, N= May Contain Nuts

I believe that food is much more than calories; it’s full of information and the quality of the food we eat dictates our ability to fight off illness, sleep well, focus, and have plenty of energy. Being healthy means becoming aware of the healthy options around you and making the right decisions for your individual needs. I encourage students to contact me with any nutrition questions because I’m here to help!
