Food Allergies

For life-threatening food allergies, meals from home provide the safest option. Many of our menu items contain common allergens; please see the food facts section for further ingredient information. Please contact your child’s cafeteria manager for information on brands and product types used in their specific cafeteria, understanding that substitutions, while not likely, may occur. Maschio’s highly recommends that students with life-threatening food allergies not purchase a-la-carte snack items. If medically necessary, substitute meal options may be provided, please contact our Registered Dietitians at 973-598-0005. A written physician’s request is required.
