Info on Menu Labeling:
Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Menu Labels-df = Dairy Freegf = Gluten Freedf/gf modified = this gets tricky. This means the meal can be gf or df if a meal component is not consumed. Unless a medical form is on file, the student may be served this component but is not obligated to consume it. To not have the component served, there MUST be a medical form on file that identifies the dietary restriction.
Carbohydrate Counts -
This information will be provided from the school nurse's nutritional analysis of our from-scratch cooking. The carb counts will be reported for ounce/cup measurements that may not match the serving size. For example: "9g per 1/2 cup" means that there are 9 grams of carbs in a half cup of the item, but a student may consume more or less of the item due to self-service of meal components. Please work with the school nurse, Maurine Clark, for accurate carb counting methods.
DISCLAIMER: The labeling on the menus should not be used for and does not provide menu planning for medical conditions or food allergies. Ingredients are subject to change or substitution without notice. All food allergies and medical conditions must be identified on a Medical Alert Form and be on file with the school nurse. This labeling is completely voluntary and NOT certified by any designee. Our kitchen processes gluten and dairy ingredients daily and all menu items can/may come into contact with these allergens.OSPI’s guidance on Special Dietary Needs
As always, please feel free to contact Chef Andy Radzialowski to discuss or navigate the menu.
