Sodexo Dining Services, the University of Pittsburgh’s food service provider, oversees the dining program in the Falk School Cafeteria. The on-site team is led by food service supervisor Glenda Dixon who comes to Falk with a solid background in food service within the K-8 school environment. Ms. Dixon helps align meal choices focused on healthy and creative menus, complementing Falk School’s philosophy, which emphasize wellness, sustainability, and a diverse variety of offerings.
To impact quality of life at Falk, Sodexo puts each student’s experience at the core of their work. Sodexo operates with a focus on delivering solutions that keep students healthy, safe, and productive, while also enriching the learning environment.
Food allergies are taken very seriously at Falk. Due to their dynamic nature, our classrooms are "Nut-Free Zones". Parents should select only nut-free snacks or treats for consumption in classrooms. Nuts of all varieties are restricted to being eaten only in the school café during lunch. Students with any type of peanut or tree nut allergy are seated at an “allergen-free” table during lunch so that cross contamination does not occur. Tables and eating spaces in the cafeteria where nuts may have been consumed are carefully monitored and thoroughly sanitized afterwards. Falk’s teachers and cafeteria staff are vigilant and attentive to all children’s safety.
