Allergen Information

The primary goal of the Half Hollow Hills Child Nutrition Program is to provide healthy, safe and nutritious meals to our students. To that end, the Office of Child Nutrition continually monitors the ingredient and nutritional labels for food products used in school meals. Adhering to the regulations set forth in the district's Food Allergy Policy (No. 5425), before purchase, we require vendors to submit nutrient and ingredient labels for all food products served in the cafeteria and vending machines. Items containing any type of nut or having traces of nuts will not be purchased. Infrequently, ingredients change without the vendor or manufacturer notifying us. In this case, which usually involves snacks, we remove the item from our shelves as soon as we become aware.

For your information, as of January 2006, when the 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.

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 contact me at bscally@hhh.k12.ny.us or 592-3021.

Sincerely,
Bonnie Scally
School Lunch Administrator
