USC Hospitality Nutrition Program

USC Hospitality is committed to promoting health and wellness at USC. Students with special nutritional or medically related dietary needs are encouraged to meet with the USC Hospitality Registered Dietitian, Lindsey Pine, to discuss these needs and to determine how to meet them through the dining options available on campus. Please fill out the Special Dietary Needs Information Form and register with Disability Services if you require special dietary accommodations.

For answers to personal nutrition questions or general inquiries about any of the foods served throughout USC Hospitality, students may write to Ask the Dietitian.

Speciality Foods


The following venues are certified kosher:

  • The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (School of Cinematic Arts).
  • Seeds Marketplace (Ronald Tutor Campus Center). Seeds offers a variety of kosher grab-and-go items. If you are required to have a full meal plan, it is suggested that you choose the Trojan Plan so that dining dollars may be used to purchase kosher items from Seeds and Coffee Dean and Tea Leaf.

Vegan and Vegetarian

Vegan and Vegetarian selections are available throughout all USC Hospitality Dining venues. All residential dining venues, Parkside, Everybody's Kitchen, and Cafe 84 have vegan and vegetarian options during all meal periods.

Food Allergens

Residential Dining is able to accommodate your special dietary needs. Please contact Lindsey Pine for assistance.

Recipes for healthy meals and snacks, nutrition and fitness information, and additional campus resources are available from the Be Well USC website.
