Diet restrictions may be accommodated. A note from the student’s physician is needed to provide this service.
Special diet requests
Dietary preference requests will need to fill out the Dietary Preference Request Form. The kitchen will decide whether or not that request can be filled.
Do I have to eat that?
Zion Lutheran School follows the USDA Offer vs. Serve provision as part of the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program. Offer vs. Serve is a provision that allows students to decline one side dish category they do not intend to eat. The provision is intended to reduce food waste in school nutrition programs. It is important to note that schools are required to offer all students all required food items.
