Special Diet Requests

If your student needs meal accommodations made for School Year 2022-2023, please read this information carefully.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Guidance on Meal Substitutions, "A participant whose handicap restricts his or her diet shall be provided substitutions in foods only when supported by a statement signed by a licensed physician." The Fulton County School Nutrition Program is more than happy to provide meal accommodations for students with physician-documented food allergies, food intolerances, or texture modification needs. We are unable to make meal accommodations for a student’s religious, cultural, or personal preferences. In order for accommodations to be made for students with food allergies or intolerances, we do ask that your student’s physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner complete the Medical Plan of Care   (Plan Médico de Cuidado) for School Nutrition(MPOC). After submitting a MPOC, the School Nutrition Program will reach out to confirm that adequate documentation is in place for your student to receive a Special Diet. Next, our team of registered dietitians will develop a nutritionally-sound menu that meets your student's unique needs.

Please note that the School Nutrition Program requires an updated Medical Plan of Care for School Nutrition to be completed each school year if meal accommodations are requested. Because dietary needs change, the Medical Plan of Care for School Nutrition form from School Year 2022-2023 will not rollover to next school year.

For more information regarding Special Diets, please contact the School Nutrition Program at MenusTeamSNP@fultonschools.org.​.​
