Making healthy menu choices easier for parents
New form helps families communicate with Food Service staff
The Bethlehem Central School District is committed to helping students and families make healthy choices. That commitment extends to our Food Service department where staff routinely help protect children with food allergies by maintaining the child’s dietary restrictions through the online sales system, to make sure they are not purchasing items that could trigger a reaction.
Additionally, the district respects parental preferences when it comes to controlling the quantity and types of items that may be purchased. To make it easier for parents to help students make healthy choices, the district can assist you in communicating with the Food Service department on specific dietary requests for your child(ren) by providing a standard form for such requests.
