National School Lunch Program – It’s Your Right!

Did you know that PKU children are entitled to assistance under the National School Lunch program? It’s true. If your child attends a school that receives funding under the National School Lunch program, the school is required to make accommodations for their special dietary needs. Cambrooke Therapeutics and Georgia PKU Connect recently held a Webinar describing resources that are available to assist you in taking advantage of this program. If you weren’t able to attend the Webinar, you can view a recording of the Webinar here. (Note that to view the Webinar you will be asked to download and install a browser “helper” application. Follow the instructions to do this.) If you are interested in this program, watching this Webinar is a great place to start.

Georgia PKU Connect board members would be happy to answer questions about the National School Lunch Program.  Please contact us with any questions at
