Special Diet Requests
If your student needs to receive a Special Diet at school during the 2020-2021 school year, please read this information carefully.
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act requires schools to follow strict meal patterns and dietary specifications. A reasonable modification to meals for children with diagnosed disabilities that restrict their diet, can be provided based on a medical statement from a licensed physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. In addition, students who receive meal modifications based on current specific dietary accommodations in their 504 Plan or IEP will receive those accommodations, and we ask for the most current information as dietary needs change.
If you believe your student qualifies for a special diet based on a diagnosed disability that restricts their diet, the Medical Plan of Care for School Nutrition MUST be completed. New forms are required each school year. Forms will be available at FoodStop sites. If your student is eligible for a special diet based on the completed form, the School Nutrition Program will meet with you to establish a menu plan that meets your student's needs.
For more information regarding Special Diets, please contact the School Nutrition Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
