A Letter to Parents from Whitsons

* Pork: This includes all pork products including sausages, mixed meat products, etc.

Please be aware that all products listed are the brands that are normally ordered. If a vendor is out of stock on a particular brand, they may substitute another brand.

Parents of students with medically documented food allergies may contact Vyju Iyengar, Food Service Director, 508-613-1731, to discuss possible substitutions for items their child is allergic to.

How to Interpret the Charts:

  1. The Food Product column of the charts indicates the different food products served by the cafeteria.
  2. The Ingredient(s) of Concern column of the charts indicates the ingredients in each product that may contain common allergens.
  3. The columns that follow each indicate a common allergen (i.e. peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat, dairy, egg). If a box is marked with an "X", this indicates that the ingredient to the left of the "X" contains that particular allergen.
  4. Color-coding is intended to separate the different food products.
