Food Allergies

  • How do we handle students with food allergies or other dietary needs?
    Parents of children with either a food-related allergy or sensitivity should provide written documentation to the school administration. Information will then be sent to the Hospitality Food Service Department at the Van Buren Technology Center where meals are prepared for the students. This will contain a physicians signed statement which will include:

    • An explanation of the disability, food allergy and/or food intolerance.
    • The food or foods to be avoided, and the food or choice of foods that must be substituted.

    Please have a doctor fill out and return the this form, in order for the substitutions to be made.
    Contact your child's school to discuss if any of the selections would be prohibited. Reasonable accommodations will be made so that your child receives a nutritious and complete meal.
    If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call Diana Stump 269-539-5310
