    FOOD ALLERGY/ STUDENT SAFETY INFORMATION

    If you have a student with a serious food allergy that is eating from the cafeteria, please contact Ms. Linda Zain at (631) 285-8192 to discuss the procedure. Communication is key and its crucial that we work closely to meet the needs of our students with food allergies.

    The government requires manufactures to list the top eight allergens on the label if it is in the food. It is not mandated for food plants to put information on the label regarding a potential risk for cross contamination if multiple allergens such as soy and wheat are utilized on the production lines. As a courtesy some companies do list this information.

    *Please note that information pertaining to the menu items food allergens and the nutritional value can be obtained by opening the menu on the eboard, clicking on the menu item, then clicking on the + icon.
