Cafeterias post 'right to know' food allergy alerts

Food allergies can be life-threatening. To minimize the chance of accidental exposure to a food that may trigger an allergic reaction, the district's new food-service provider posts "right to know" information in every school cafeteria. The information -- kept in a binder -- lists ingredients in school food that are common causes of food allergies. They include:

  • Milk and milk products

  • Egg and egg products

  • Peanut and peanut products

  • Tree nut and tree nut products

  • Soy and soy products

  • Fish and fish products

  • Shellfish and shellfish products

The binder does not list manufacturers who also may process allergens (like peanuts) in other products they produce. However, Whitson's requires its manufacturers to have practices in place that minimize the possibility accidental contamination from other products during the manufacturing process.


Any student with a severe food allergy should NOT assume that a food is safe to eat and should always ask before eating cafeteria food. That student's parent or guardian should contact the food-service manager to discuss dietary needs and restrictions. Product specifications are subject to change and manufacturers are not required by law to provide updated ingredient declarations to Whitson's.


For more information, contact Stephanie Lasher, Whitson's onsite food service director, at 475-6644 or

Information regarding the use of pork and school meals
Food Services serves turkey-based cold cuts. The bologna, ham and salami are made from turkey; there are no pork products added. Hot dogs are 100 percent beef. When pork is served we will offer a turkey equivalent as an alternate. When we serve real ham with pork it will be reflected as such on the menu.

  • Sandwiches are offered daily as an alternative to the lunch selection: Monday = turkey; Tuesday = turkey bologna; Wednesday = turkey and cheese; Thursday = ham; and Friday = egg or tuna salad. All sandwiches are served on whole-wheat bread.

  • Rolls and breads are available daily, as are low-fat, chocolate or regular milk.

  • Salads are available daily.

  • Menus are subject to change.

  • Prepaid meals are encouraged.
