    Special Dietary Requirements
     
    As always, we work hard to make reasonable accommodations for special dietary requirements. Many of these requests can be accommodated within the meal pattern guidelines that we must adhere to and would not require a medical statement. However, If your student has a food allergy that requires us to make a substitution that doesn't meet the USDA Food Pattern Guidelines, then we will need a medical statement signed by a State-licensed health care professional that we must keep on file. To request a milk substitute, we will also need either a medical statement signed by a State-licensed health care professional or a signed note from the child's parent or guardian.
     
    Free and Reduced Meal Applications
     
    Even though all meals will be free this year to all students it is very important to fill out an application for free and reduced meal benefits. There are many benefits to families including P-EBT funds that are tied directly to the applications. Your school district is also able to provide many services that are funded by grants tied to these applications. You are welcome to learn more about how we all benefit when folks fill out the form. There are links on the left side of this page to easily fill out a form. 
     
    If you have any comments, suggestions or menu ideas/recipes please consider filling out our FEEDBACK FORM or contact your local Food Service Director.
