Meals for students with special dietary needs are provided at all school sites. Federal and State Regulations require a current, complete Diet Prescription Form for any type of change/substitution to menus. The current Diet Prescription Form is available below.
The Diet Prescription Form will need to be completed by your child's physician. We will not process a special diet request for your child until we receive the form for the 2015 - 2016 school year. Please fax, mail, or deliver the form to the Plaquemines Parish Child Nutrition Department, 30950-A Highway 23, Buras, Louisiana 70041 - phone (504) 564-0088 - fax (504) 564-0029. If you have any questions regarding the form please contact the Child Nutrition Department at (504) 564-0088.
**PLEASE NOTE** If a student cannot have fluid milk due to a medical diagnosis, the substitution must be filled out on the Diet Prescription Form by the child's physician. The following milk substitutions are available: 4 oz 100% fruit juice or bottled water.
