Special Dietary Needs

  • Friut and vegetablesAccommodating Children with Special Dietary Needs within the AGCS Nutrition Program

    If a child has been determined by a doctor to be disabled and the disability would prevent the child from eating regular school meals, AGCS will make substitutions as prescribed by the student's doctor. If a substitution is needed, there will be no additional charge.

    Our Food Services department will attempt to make substitutions for students who have a special dietary need, but do not meet the definition of disability (ie. food intolerances). Lactose Free Milk is available for those students with a non-disabling special dietary need, such as milk intolerance, or due to cultural, religious or ethnic beliefs.

    To discuss your child's disability or special dietary need, please contact:
