Special Diet Needs
For students requiring diet modifications due to special dietary needs MUSD Food Services can help. As leaders in nutrition, the Food Services Department is dedicated to properly meeting the individual nutritional needs of students in compliance with all federal regulations. Our cafeteria Site Supervisors work hard to tailor daily menu choices for students requiring diet modifications.
To properly meet the individual needs of students requiring special diets, parents need to provide a doctor’s written instructions with specific details, which District Food Service staff will use to build the child’s breakfast and lunch choices. To assist parents in providing the necessary information to Food Services, contact your child's school cafeteria to obtain the “Request for Diet Modification” form and provide to the doctor. Return the completed form and/or a letter from a physician to the Marana Unified School District-Food Services office or to the school’s Cafeteria Supervisor.
If the special diet request is related to religious or other non-medical preference, please contact the school’s Cafeteria Supervisor to discuss daily choices for the student. Parents do not need to complete the “Request for Diet Modification” form in those situations.
For detailed information related to carbohydrate information, please visit our interactive online menu for up to date nutritional information. The online menu offers a carbohydrate list for all menu items. The list can be located in the upper right corner of the online menu and can be printed.
Allergy Related Information
For information related to allergy information, please visit our online menu for current information. Detailed nutritional information including allergy information can be viewed for each menu item by scrolling over the item name. Above the nutrition information you will find a list of any allergens found in that food.
The Special Diets Filter can be a quick and helpful tool in choosing diet appropriate items. It can be found in the upper right hand corner of the menu; using this tool “crosses-out” menu items that contain the selected allergen.
For questions regarding Special Diet Needs please contact the school's Cafeteria Supervisor or Holly Smith, Food Service Specialist at 520-682-4712 or email.
