Special Dietary Needs

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 2023 - 2024 school year.  Please fax, mail, or deliver the form to the Plaquemines Parish Child Nutrition Department, 26138 Highway 23, Port Sulphur, Louisiana  70083 - 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.

If a student cannot have fluid milk due to a medical diagnosis, the Physician must prescribe the milk substitute on the Diet Prescription Form stating the item(s) the student is allowed to have. The following milk substitutions are available: 4 oz juice and bottled water. Please allow 5 business days to process these forms. Student must bring breakfast/lunch to school for the first week after form is submitted. This is to ensure your child's diet has been reviewed and accommodations have been made. Please contact your school cafeteria manager for any questions regarding your child's diet. 


Please contact the Child Nutrition Office if you have any questions.
