• Welcome to the Nutrition Services Department

    Nutrition Services Logo The Nutrition Services Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality food and service, in an effort to enhance the overall health and well-being of District 65 students. The department is comprised of over 60 food and nutrition professionals that support student learning by promoting healthy habits for life-long nutrition practices.

    The meals, food, and beverages sold in District 65 schools meet state and federal requirements that are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This ensures that meals and snacks are well-balanced, age-appropriate, full of whole-grains, fruits, vegetables, and are low in fat and sodium. In addition, they are prepared to maximize student acceptability. Members of the Nutrition Services team continually strive to improve the nutritional integrity of its breakfast and lunch programs.
