About Nutrition Services

  • Nutrition Services logo The Nutrition Services Department of the Valley View School District is a nonprofit $8 million dollar a year business. Over 175 part time Nutrition Services professionals take pride in preparing breakfast and lunch for about 18,000 students daily. We prepare food on site in all eighteen of our buildings.

    The Nutrition Services program is operated under the federally funded National School Lunch Act and Child Nutrition Act. The federal laws regulating the Nutrition Services programs are administered by the United States Department of Agriculture through the Illinois Department of Education. The USDA is an equal opportunity employer and provider.

    Nutrition Integrity

    • Nutritional values of meals are evaluated over a period of a week rather than judged on a single meal or food item.
    • Student meals contain adequate calories and a variety of foods to support growth, development, and a healthy weight.
    • Purchasing practices ensure the use of high quality ingredients and prepared items to maximize student acceptance. Nutrition Services professionals continue to work with industry to develop these foods.
    • Foods are prepared in ways that ensure a balance between optimal nutrition quality and student acceptance.
    • Foods offered to students in addition to the school breakfast and lunch will be of optimal nutrition quality.
    • The school cafeteria serves as an educational venue to promote good nutrition practices.
     
    We continually strive to improve the nutritional integrity of our breakfast and lunch programs.
