Special Diet Accommodations

  • Special diets can be provided to DVUSD students with diagnosed medical conditions such as Celiac Disease, PKU and Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE) and for students that need to avoid certain food groups and/or foods such as dairy, eggs and soy due to allergies.
    A special diet accommodation request form must be completed by a licensed physician in order for a special diet to be provided. The form can be found below.
    Completed forms can be returned several different ways:
    1. Dropped off in your school cafeteria
    2. Mailed directly to the Food & Nutrition Department at 21421 N. 21st Avenue, Bldg 2, Phoenix, AZ 85027
    3. Faxed to our office at 623-445-5167.
    Please allow 2 weeks from the time Food & Nutrition has received your request until meal will begin for your student. You will be notified by the district dietitian and the kitchen manager. New or changes to existing diets after May 1st will take effect for the next school year.
    For more information, contact the Registered Dietitian in the Food & Nutrition Department at 623-445-5165 or Nona.dasenbrock@dvusd.org.
     This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
