In an attempt to accommodate the needs of an increasing number of children with food allergies like celiac disease, the Food Service Department at Skaneateles Central Schools is planning to offer more gluten-free food options in the cafeteria and a la carte line.
School Lunch Manager Elaine Crysler is asking for taste-testing help. She invites parents and children to attend a taste testing and discussion regarding gluten-free foods on Tuesday Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. at the State Street Elementary School, Room 102.
Samples will be provided of some new gluten-free foods including cookies, pizza dough, bread, and cake mixes. "A short discussion will also be held to get your input and any suggestions you may have so we can better serve your child's dietary needs. A comprehensive list will be provided of our current food offerings that contain gluten verses those that are gluten-free," Crysler said in a letter to parents.
People who plan to attend are asked to R.S.V.P. to Crysler via phone at 291-2248 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
