The WCASD Food Service Department strive to create and maintain eating environments that are healthy, safe and inclusive. The WCASD food service team recognize they have an important role in allergy prevention and management and take student allergies very seriously. We are committed to partnering with school staff to ensure that students with allergies are able to feel comfortable and safe eating in the cafeteria!
To accomplish this, a multifaceted approach should be taken which includes:
- training the staff how to recognize an allergic reaction and the common food allergen
- sharing information with school nurses and teachers on which students have allergies, especially severe cases
- developing detailed allergy prevention procedures including cleaning, proper labeling
