Lutherhaven Ministries endeavors to provide the safest environment possible at all times for all our guests. This includes food safety. With an increase over the last several years in food allergies, Lutherhaven works to accommodate guests with one or more of the “Top 8” food allergens recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration, foods that cause 90% of all food allergic reactions.
8 Most Common Food Allergies
- Tree nuts
Among this group peanuts and tree nuts are the most common severe allergy and can often be life threatening. Therefore, we follow the national movement to remove all peanut and tree nut products from our kitchen menus. We do not add peanut and tree nut products to our prepared food items. We also do not serve shellfish to guests at camp.
Campers with other food allergies, intolerances, lifestyle choices or concerns may need to refrain from certain food items at camp, or provide their own food.
Campers requiring an epi-pen should bring two with them to camp. One to carry with them and another for the Health Care Manager to keep in the Health Center.
Our kitchens are not equipped to meet the strict food handling requirements of guests with this disorder. Guests with Celiac Disease should plan on bringing their own food.
