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 foods nowadays which do not contain nuts are often processed through machinery that also handles nuts.

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 snacks. A menu is posted in the hall as well as in each classroom.

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.
