Breakfast & Lunch Menus
Our team is committed to providing nutritious, high-quality meals for all District 65 students. All meals served are made using whole grains and low-sodium ingredients.
Students are offered up to six fruit and vegetable selections daily. All meals are accompanied by wholesome fat-free or low-fat milk. When possible, locally-grown produce and meat is served, including apples, berries, corn, and bone-in chicken.
All meals, food, and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements that are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines and are prepared and served by qualified school nutrition professionals.
If your child has special dietary needs, please contact our Nutrition Services Coordinator at (847) 859-8130.

Nutrition and Allergy Information
Nutrition Information for School Meals
District 65 participates in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast program. Both programs are federally funded, directed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and implemented by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
All school meals are in compliance with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. This helps to ensure our student breakfasts and lunches have more whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, and less fat and sodium and sets sensible calorie limits based on the age of children being served. The documents below contain nutrition and allergy information for food and beverages served in District 65 schools. A nutrition analysis of school meals, ala carte snacks, and beverages was completed using NutriKids, a USDA-approved software program, and by a Registered Dietitian. The analysis includes serving size, pertinent nutrition values, and its specific contribution towards the National School Lunch Program meal pattern.
