    Food Allergies 

    The risk of accidental exposure or cross-contamination is always present in school, particularly for students with food allergies. The school setting is a high-risk environment for accidental ingestion of a food allergen due to the presence of a large number of students, increased exposure to food allergens, and cross-contamination of tables, desks, and other surfaces. 

    The Jamesville-DeWitt Food Service team takes food allergies seriously. Students may bring nut-containing foods for lunch as there is a nut-free table in each school’s cafeteria. Please reach out to let our team know if a student has an allergy or needs special accommodations. You can reach School Lunch Manager Rita Vedsted at or 315-445-5286 with any questions or concerns.
