Our kitchen is a nut free facility and our recipes are all Nut Free*

*Please note: We cannot guarantee that any food ingredients from an outside source have not been exposed to nuts. Furthermore we literally leave the food in the hands of volunteers, teachers, lunchtime monitors, students, etc., who might unknowingly have been exposed to nuts beforehand. Because of this, we recommend students with mild to severe allergies not to order.

When you sign up with Fuel Catering, we will provide you with all the information you need regarding ordering deadlines, policies, and payment options.

Yes! We created Fuel Catering to meet just that need. Our recipes are created by our Executive Chef and meet all of the guidelines.

The Guidelines were created in 2005 and updated in 2013. They were revised with a 2015 edition to recognize and address four key facts:

  1. Students, on an average school day, consume about one third of their calories at school and a significant amount of those calories are purchased on site*;
  2. Good nutrition is important for healthy growth and development in children and can reduce risk of health problems in later years*;
  3. Healthy children learn better*;
  4. Schools can directly influence student’s health.*

The goal of the Guidelines is to improve the choices offered within the school setting so that it is easy for students to make healthy choices on a routine basis. The food environment influences our purchasing and consumption habits. The Guidelines provide schools, and food/beverage providers within schools, with a standard for decision-making.*
