Special Diet Statement

Institutions or organizations who sponsor and operate a federally funded Child Nutrition Program must make reasonable substitutions to meals and/or snacks on a case-by-case basis for participants who are considered to have a disability that restricts their diet.* According to the ADA Amendments Act, most physical and mental impairments that substantially limit or affect one or more major life activities or bodily functions will constitute a disability. Sponsors are not required to accommodate special dietary requests that are not a disability. This includes requests related to religious or moral convictions or personal preference. See form for more.
