Food Policy

NO OUTSIDE FOOD POLICY
St. Joseph’s is a nut free center.  We provide care for children who have life threatening allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, etc…and our priority is safety. Due to this, we ask that families do not bring outside food into our center. This includes special treats, breakfast, or an extra snack.  Many food nowadays which do not contain nuts are often times processed through machinery that also handles nuts.

WHAT WE PROVIDE
St Joseph’s serves a morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack. The morning snack is not meant to be a replacement for breakfast.  Meals are prepared in the school by a trained and state certified cook.  If your child is arriving after 8:40, they will not receive morning snack.  A menu is posted in the hall as well as each classroom. 

SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS
Children who require a special diet must have a letter from a pediatrician.  If your child has any food allergies, parents must send in a written letter about the child’s allergies to the Director or the teacher.  If your child is required to eat a special diet, parents are responsible for bringing the meal.
