If your child has special dietary needs and would like to participate in the school lunch program please don’t hesitate to contact food service. Also available is a gluten free menu which is linked to the regular menu. Most of the regular 1st choices can be very easily made Gluten Free with just a few tweaks. If it’s not a choice there are alternate choices to the far right that would also always be available. Any special meal will have to be ordered with the cafeteria manager by 9 AM. Their contact information is on each menu. This gives us the time to be sure that your child will have a lunch that is safe and delicious. The food service program is growing and evolving. It is better now than it was last year and every year we strive to improve and meet the needs of the children in Hingham Schools.
