Ricker Dining

Ricker students Ricker Logo

The first university facility of its kind in the nation, Ricker Dining is Stanford's highly lauded peanut and tree nut-sensitive dining environment. In recognition of the growing number of students with nut allergies, we've taken the steps necessary to provide a safe, full-featured facility in which nut-sensitive and non-nut-sensitive diners alike can enjoy the best of what R&DE Stanford Dining has to offer. With its beautiful dining location on the west side of campus complete with lounge areas and trellised patio, it's best to enjoy your meal al fresco.

Peanut and Tree Nut Sensitive Program only at Ricker Dining

Peanut Sensitive

Peanuts and tree nuts are two of the most common food allergies. Here at Stanford, some students have such severe peanut and tree nut allergies that they must avoid eating in the dining halls that may contain nuts. In response to a clear need for peanut and tree nut allergy awareness in university dining services nationwide, R&DE Stanford Dining made Ricker Dining the first on-campus dining facility in the country to designate itself a peanut and tree nut sensitive environment. R&DE Stanford Dining is paving the way for other institutions to follow in our footsteps, and we are proud to be able to meet such a pressing health need of our students.
