Food Policy

MRE Classroom Food Policy

The purpose of our food policy is to make our school safer for our students with allergies and comply with the state Ed Code for nutritional requirements.

  • All classroom food events adhere to the following rules:
  • All food served must follow Ed Code nutrition requirements by either being from the cafeteria or on the list of approved foods.
  •  All food must be pre-packaged, labeled with ingredients
  • All fresh fruit and vegetables must be washed/cut/prepared in a commercial kitchen except fresh fruit with an inedible peel which is served whole.
  • Prepackaged food labels must be provided to the teacher two days in advance so that the teacher has time to check ingredients.
  • No home-prepared food
  • Students may not give candy or food to other students. All food must be distributed by the teacher. Students may not include candy/food with their Valentines or pass out candy to their friends on Halloween or Valentines Day or any other day.
  • There will be no impromptu food parties. These events will be calendared and all families in the class will be notified two weeks before the party.
  • Parents who wish to send in a "treat" for their child's birthday are encouraged to provide non-food "treats" such as pencils, erasers, party favors etc.
