The goal of the Half Hollow Hills Food Services Program is to provide healthy, safe and nutritious meals to our students. Adhering to the regulations set forth in the district's Food Allergy Policy (No. 5420), before purchase, we require vendors to submit nutrient and ingredient labels for all food products served in the cafeteria and vending machines. The HHH List of Allergens in School Lunch Foods is based on the data we have for the items we intend to purchase and serve. As supply chain issues continue, nutritional information for menu changes and substitutions may not be identical to the list. 

 

For your information, as of January 2006, when new allergen labeling laws went into effect, all food products must clearly say on the package if they contain any of the foods that are responsible for most allergies: milk, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, wheat, egg, shellfish or fish. However, manufacturers are not required to indicate on the package if a product may have trace amounts of an allergen or is processed in a facility with allergens. At HHH items containing any type of nut or having traces of nuts will not be purchased knowingly. 

 

Please be advised, the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies we sell are made in a facility that uses nuts in other items.

 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please call the Food Services Office at 631-592-3021.

 

Sincerely,
Lisa Papalia
Food Services Manager
