From my understanding in the US, if a child of any religious order is not able to eat the food prepared by the school they need to bring their own from home, if they can not afford this, may I suggest PB&J, no need to be halal or anything else then. When I was in school growing up, I am/was Catholic, we observe lent, no meat on Ash Weds. and no fridays until Easter, and no pork for all of lent until Easter, always loved the ham at Easter for that reason. I didnt get special food on those holidays in school, I had to bring my lunch, even though MOST of my classmates were also Catholic, it was a seperation of church and state.

    Yea, but Jewish kids in the U.S. got every Jewish holiday off, and ate certain foods at school lunch. But, nope certain religious food was not forced down anyone’s throats.

      that is true, but they (the Jewish) families did not impose their religious diet on others. neither did the Catholics, it was on the person who was that religion to be sure of what they ate, it was not applied to everyone no matter their religious affiliation.
