Nutrient Info & Special Dietary Needs

All Federal Meal Program sponsors are required to serve meals at no extra charge to children whose handicap restricts their diet (7CFR 15b 26 {d}.

Peanuts and Tree Nuts

Student Nutrition Services does not serve any items with peanuts or tree nuts.  However, we do bring in products and fresh baked goods that are produced in facilities that may handle and process nuts, so we cannot guarantee that meals are completely free of traces of nuts, or nut residue.

Food Substitutions for Religous Requirements

Most substitutions for food items may be made if children are unable, because of religious reasons, to consume certain foods. Prior approval for food substitutions for religious reasons must be obtained from Student Nutrition Services. No pork is served on the menu.

Food Substitutions for Food Allergies

Substitutions because of food allergies may be made when supported by a statement from a recognized medical authority. Student Nutrition Services has prepared forms that may be duplicated and used for this purpose. The completed form must be kept on file by the school. Annual updating is recommended. Allergy-related food substitutions made in response to a medical certificate from a physician are not mandated by State of Federal regulations, except for children who are eligible for free or reduced price meals. In that case, because of EC Section 49550 (referred to as the State Meal Mandate), denying the substitution results in a violation of State law. Substitutions for children who do not have a disability and who are eligible for full price meals are discretionary and may be provided if the sponsor so chooses, as specified in the National School Lunch Program regulations.

Food Substitutions for Disabilities

Students are considered disabled when their condition substantially limits one or more major life activity such as caring for one’s self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. 7CFR, part 210.10(i)(1), addresses the requirements for providing special meals to children whose disabilities restrict the diets: Schools shall make substitutions in foods…for students who are considered to have disability under 7CFR part 15b and whose disability restricts their diet. School may also make substitutions for students with no disability who are unable to consume the regular meal because of medical or other special dietary needs. Substitutions shall be made on a case-by-case basis only when supported by a statement of the need for substitutions that includes recommended alternate foods, unless otherwise exempted by a physician or, in the case of a student not having a disability, by a recognized medical authority.

** A recognized medical authority is a physician’s assistant or a nurse practitioner.
