Request for Special Diet Form

Special Dietary Needs Requests

  • Pullman School District recognizes that student allergies may affect the way a child consumes school lunch. It is our goal to make all meals, allergen friendly or not, appealing and nutrient rich to all students. Allergy lunches may look different than a typical lunch, but are designed around specific student needs.
    Starting school year 2024-2025 Pullman School District schools will not be serving foods with peanuts, peanut products, tree nuts, tree nut products.
  • Pullman School District schools serve Sun Butter ( sunflower seed butter) instead of peanut butter sandwiches.
