In the wake of a recent Department of Justice ruling on gluten-free foods, the Globe took a look at the food fare Boston area colleges are offering.

The Globe found that the University of Massachusetts Boston and Boston University have gluten-free zones in cafeterias and food courts. Tufts University and Harvard University take a more individual approach.

Reporter Akilah Johnson also found tasty offerings at Northeastern, including "gluten-free creamed green beans.''

Earlier this month, the Globe reported that the Department of Justice had reached an agreement with Lesley University under which the university will provide hot and cold gluten- and allergen-free foods in its dining hall food lines.

The agreement will “ensure students ... can obtain safe and nutritional food options,” Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the civil rights division, said in an announcement last month.
