#810200 Need Advice

I'm guessing you receive your meal as a benefit because you will be working during lunch. Everywhere I have worked staff were expected to eat with the residents to model appropriate behavior, make sure everyone was served and offer assistance as needed. This was also a good time to get to know the residents in a more informal and relaxed setting.

I'm not sure what type of residential program you are talking about but I have worked with abused children, troubled teens and developmentally disabled adults in residential settings and this has been the case everywhere I have worked. Since it could be considered part of your job you may have to mention your dietary restrictions. Approached in the right way, you should be able to work this out.
