My child has a peanut allergy; can they still purchase school lunch?
Answer: Our district understands that food allergies can be life-threatening. In consideration of peanut allergies, we have opted to provide a sunflower butter and jelly sandwich. However, we cannot guarantee that our foods are processed in a peanut-free or nut free environment. For example, our whole grain chocolate chip cookie and granola are not processed in a peanut/nut free environment. These items could contain traces of peanuts/nuts. Parents and guardians should contact the food-service managers to discuss special dietary needs and restrictions.
