SNAP's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Any time you order food, it is your responsibility to identify any allergies to the staff to ensure the right measures are taken to prevent cross-contamination. We remind all students with allergies to ask if they are ever unsure whether the food is safe to eat. Our staff is friendly and always happy to help!
If you have other questions regarding navigating dietary restrictions or allergies while on campus, please get in touch with SNAP at firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a message on our Instagram, Facebook, or Snapchat
If you have questions about dietary allergies or restrictions while in residence or on campus, please contact SNAP, and we will give you detailed information on your next steps. We can be reached via email at email@example.com or on Instagram, Facebook, or Snapchat (@snapuofguelph) .

To create balanced meals, Canada’s Food Guide recommends having:
½ plate of fruits and vegetables
¼ plate of whole grains
¼ plate of protein sources
Don’t forget to try out different flavours, spices, cultural dishes, and food combinations to experiment with what you like; food is meant to be enjoyed!
